art and the political

Posted: October 22, 2007 in All and Sundry, Musings

The relationship of art to the political is not confined to fixed polarities but formed in the dynamics of relational processes. (Nikos Papastergiadis, Spatial Aesthetics: Art, Place and the Everyday, 2006)

… politics has its aesthetics, and aesthetics has its politics. But there is no formula for an appropriate correlation. (Jacques Rancière, The Politics of Aesthetics, 2004)
