Jacques Ranciere
The Politics of Aesthetics

What I’m most interested in is how Ranciere teases out the definition of the visible and invisible as indispensable to politics. Rather than seeing aesthetics as a narrow definition beholden to philosophy, art and history, this text invites viewers to understand every aspect of visual culture as inherently politically charged. The question of visibility becomes increasingly important when discussing the media and material culture of sexuality and sex work.
