Thinking Systems Patterns — Politics of Aesthetics

Date: 

Thursday, April 25, 2019, 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).

For this last iteration of Thinking Systems Patterns, we will look at core passages from both Rancière and Arendt. Along the lines of these thoughts, we will discuss the role of aesthetics as aisthesis (regarding both perception and appearance) in politics as well as the presentation of the political realm in the public, especially in media.

This event is open to everyone interested in these topics and an open discussion about them. Reading is highly encouraged, but not mandatory. We will serve wine and cheese and very much look forward to you!

 

We'll be talking about chapters 1 and 4 of Rancière's Distribution of the Sensible, as well as about chapters 1, 12, and 13 of Arendt's The Human Condition. Both are available at respective links.
