Jaques Ranciére: The Emancipated Spectator
Jaques Ranciére: The Emancipated Spectator (Verso / 2009)
'Beginning by asking exactly what we mean by political art or the politics of art, he goes on to look at what the tradition of critical art, and the desire to insert art into life, has achieved. Has the militant critique of the consumption of images and commodities become, instead, a melancholic affirmation of their omnipotence?'
Hardback in very good condition with clean, unmarked pages free from notes and underlining and only the most minimal signs of shelfwear to dustjacket.
