Jacques Rancière: The Politics of Images
Wednesday, 7 January, 19h, Aula

Die Veranstaltungen findet in englischer Sprache statt.

“After the reign of the spectacle, the death of the image and an ethics of the non-representable have each been proclaimed, it seems timely to rethink the consistency of the image and the forms of its efficiency.”

Jacques Rancière

Jacques Rancière (born Algiers, 1940) is a French philosopher and Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris VIII (St. Denis) where he taught from 1969 to 2000. He came first to prominence when he co-authored "Reading Capital" (1968) with the Marxist philosopher and his mentor Louis Althusser, with whom he later split over the proper response to the student revolt of May 1968. Today, Rancière is most well known for his writings on emancipatory politics, aesthetics and the relationship between aesthetics and politics. He also writes extensively on cinema. His recent publications in german are Zehn Thesen zur Politik (diaphanes 2008) and Ist Kunst widerständig? (Merve 2008).
