Transformations Journal CFP: "Rancière: Politics, Art and Sense."

In The Politics of Aesthetics, Jacques Rancière has argued that we need to rethink aesthetics as "the invention of new forms of life" (25). Rejecting the idea that aesthetics should be confined to such questions as the status of the art object and the aestheticisation of politics, Rancière's work opens up aesthetics to a reflection on the possibilities of sense and its distribution in terms of sensible forms and practices. Politics is itself aesthetic in that it requires a sharing of sense in common; art is not the exemplary site of sensory pleasure or the sublime but a critical break with common sense, opening up possibilities of new commonalities of sense.
