words, melodrama can become an effective counter-discourse when it focuses on that part of the population of a democracy that philosopher Jacques Rancière calls the demos – those who have neither political voice nor representation. Although short of constituting what Rancière (2010) calls a dissensus, that is, a direct political action of the demos against the consensus, melodrama cannot simply be neutralized as mere culture industry opiate.

Directing the ‘sensible’

). I will here employ Jacques Rancière’s term for this emergent socio-cultural configuration already referred to in the Introduction, above: the ‘aesthetic regime of art’ (see Rancière 2013). Emphasising the transition from the previous ‘representative regime’ to this emerging ‘aesthetic regime’ of art in the nineteenth century, Rancière challenges narratives that foreground the modernist break around 1900. For him, the latter was no more than the fine tuning of the new aesthetic dispositif.3 I suggest that the advent of the director and, even more so, of Regie as a

transforms the story of the long journey through France’s hinterland into a metaphor of ‘solidarity and connectedness across gender, class, race and sex divides’ and a paradigm for political intervention (p. 118). Undermining the stereotypical association banlieue–immigration–lawlessness and the French State’s systemic discrimination against immigrants from former colonies based on national amnesia, La Marche is a ‘heterogeneous text that weaves a new relationship between present and past’ and transforms France’s national historiography (p. 123). Using Jacques Rancière’s

its status as something fait (‘done’/‘fact-ed’). The pictures were prompted by the fact of the conflict, but their status as historical data remains uncertain, since they depict nothing – destroyed tanks or dead bodies – that would allow the viewer to establish an affective relationship to the event’s material consequences. As Jacques Rancière has written, Ristelhueber ‘effects a displacement of the exhausted affect of indignation to a more discreet affect, an affect of indeterminate effect’. 11 What we see is that we do not see what we expect, and perhaps even

an intersubjective relation where previously there was none, confronting existing systems with what lies behind their boundaries, and in so doing providing them with three possible responses. First, to ignore the interruptive noise and hope it goes away of its own accord; second, to forcibly exclude the noise in the hope of achieving or maintaining a nominally spotless purity; or third, to transform in such a way as to incorporate the noise within itself. 10 It is for this reason that Jacques Rancière argues that ‘politics comes about solely through

. Rather, I take presentness to be the equivalent of a physical ‘thereness’ which is resistant to all knowledge. Presentness, in my reading, is disruptive; it sets subjectivity reeling. In order to get to grips with the politics involved in Genet’s attempts to dislocate the audience, I supplement Lefebvre’s ideas with those of the post-Althusserian philosophers Jacques Rancière and Alain Badiou. 19 According to Rancière, becoming a political subject does not mean that we identify with a pre-existing set of ideological roles (say, for instance, signing up as a party
