“The Politics of Aesthetics” reading group

The Politics of Aesthetics book cover

Tomorrow is the first meeting of the reading group, Ranciere: The Politics of Aesthetics (and/as an Ethics), at The Public School.

It is a difficult, bordering on impenetrable, book (just see the Glossary of Technical Terms) in the tradition of so much French theory; and the course promises to perform a close reading of it to “extract an ethics.” At the same time, it seems important to come to terms with whatever it is about Ranciere holds such appeal for much of the contemporary art world (as evidenced by the reaction to The Emancipated Spectator and the March 2007 issue of Artforum devoted largely to him).

There are a couple of spaces left for the class tomorrow if you want to sign up for the 3 week class, which is being led by Robert Summers. cell phone ringtones verizon,ringtones for verizon phone,download cell phone ringtones verizoncaller digi ringtones tamil,caller ringtones,free caller ringtonesfree midi ringtonesdownload pc ringtonesfree mp3 ringtones converter1600 nokia ringtonesfree motorola ringtones tracfone100 mobile ringtones virgin,100 virgin mobile ringtonesfree motorola tracfone ringtonesunlimited music ringtones,music ringtones unlimitedfax instant loan no paydaycash til payday loanpayday loan torontocost loan low paydayno fax payday cash advanceadvance cash net payday usapayday loan calculatorloan payday say until wordpress,loan payday until,loan until paydayadvance cash loan payday software? ?cheap payday loanbad credit payday personal loan,bad credit payday loan,bad credit payday loan loanquick low interest payday loan,quick pay payday loan,loan payday quickadvance loan payday software? ?cashpayday loan 1000how to start payday loan company,best payday loan company,company loan paydaycash america payday loan,america cash loan paydayadvance cash fast loan paydayeasy payday loanbest payday loancash fast loan online payday search,fast loan payday,auto fast loan paydaydefault loan paydayaccount loan payday savings,no teletrack payday loan with savings account,payday loan in savings account30 day loan payday,30 day payday loanyahoo payday loanez payday loanno faxing needed payday loanonline no fax payday loancash advance payday loan softwareaccount bank loan no paydayfast online payday loanemergency payday loaninternet payday loancash international loan payday servicespayday loan paycheck advancepayday loan onlinecheck loan no payday teletrack,no teletrack payday loan,1000 loan no payday teletrackcash loan payday quickfee loan low paydayno credit check payday loanbank loan no payday statement

“Showing” is an exhibition by Jordan Crandall that takes its form as a series of events at TELIC Arts Exchange between September 8 and October 20. These events include presentations, screenings, and performances, along with discursive interventions in various formats. TELIC operates as a stage throughout the show, with every event being recorded and then distributed as a catalog series of DVD’s.

Presentations by: Julie Albright (on self-transformation, makeover, and the management of attraction); Scott Bukatman (on attraction, spectacle, and the cult of the amateur); Gary Dauphin and Josephina Ayerza (on the “pose” as a marker of identity and social standing); Mimi Nguyen (on the circuits between star and fan); Susanna Paasonen (on sexuality, pornography, and affect); John Paul Ricco (on narcissism and the space of exposure), and Theresa Senft (on webcamming, micro-celebrity, and performance in everyday life). “Watch Me Get Watched” program organized by Glenn Phillips and Catherine Taft. “Showing for All” program organized by Dylan Wilcox.
