Thinking Systems Patterns — Politics of Aesthetics

7:00pm to 10:00pm

Location: 

Dudley Common Room

While the term »politics of aesthetics« has been coined by French philosopher Jacques Rancière, it has since made a little career as a term describing the way ›politics work‹. At its core, his theory claims that there is a »distribution of the sensible« that establishes who is able to act and on which basis. He separates the narratives about history from possible activities in the realm of politics and asserts that action depends on appearance (as Arendt had developed).
