Editorial Reviews

Review

“Jacques Rancière’s Aisthesis transforms the field of aesthetic philosophy.”—Libération

“French philosopher Jacques Rancière is a refreshing read for anyone concerned with what art has to do with politics and society.”—Art Review

“In the face of impossible attempts to proceed with progressive ideas within the terms of postmodernist discourse, Rancière shows a way out of the malaise.”—Liam Gillick

“It’s clear that Jacques Rancière is relighting the flame that was extinguished for many—that is why he serves as such a signal reference today.”—Thomas Hirschhorn

“Far from the grand narratives of modernism that claim the language of art progresses in the search for purity ... modernity breaks down the hierarchy between spheres of culture, disturbing the boundaries between art and life ... [Rancière] analyzes a series of moments from this other history that could only be written in proliferating fragments ... this aesthetic ‘regime’ conditions the forms of art and democracy in an era of the permanent emergence of new sovereign subjects.”—Le Monde

“Since The Division of the Sensible ... Rancière has been reminding those who would separate the wheat from the chaff in contemporary creative practices that art only exists as an unstable boundary that must be continually crossed. In Aisthesis the philosopher develops his thinking, drawing fifteen scenes of a counter-history of artistic modernity.”—Le Magazine Littéraire
