of participatory art (2012, p. 18). I share Bishop’s concern to find a suitable vocabulary and frame of analysis that will do justice to the complexity of participatory practices, rather than assessing them with unfitting standards. She proposes a ‘transversal aesthetic’ in the spirit of Félix Guattari, an agonistic approach inspired by Chantal Mouffe, and ‘an aesthetic regime that is constitutively contradictory’ in the spirit of Jacques Rancière (Bishop, 2012, p. 278; Rancière, 2002). It is no doubt possible to find convincing examples of artworks where tension

. Although the immediate focus of the essay is M. Cavell, the larger target is the general Enlightenment position, revived today in more than one quarter (e.g., William Connolly, Richard Rorty, Robert Pippin, Jacques Rancière) that popular film can serve to instruct us in democracy. Indeed, perhaps here is the place to re-emphasize that I criticize Cavell not because I think he is the

France initiated by philosopher Jacques Rancière and classicist Nicole Loraux that has sought to recuperate anachronism from its historically pejorative connotations. Two recent interventions have sought to examine the stigma associated with anachronism in historical discourse. The first was by Rancière, who coined the term ‘anachronies’, arguing that it was necessary to reclaim anachronism in positive terms. Rancière argues, ‘Il n’y a pas d’anachronisme. Mais il y a des modes de connexion que nous pouvons appeler positivement des anachronies : des événements, des

Biosocial power and normative fictions
Kevin Ryan

the issue of incomplete or inadequate socialisation is evoked in the form of ‘deviancy’, ‘juvenile delinquency’ or, more recently, through debates on so-called ‘anti-social behaviour’ (see Faulkner 2011a: 100–9). The objective of this book is to bring the relationship between power and childhood into sharper focus, eschewing quasi-functionalist concepts such as socialisation and drawing on the work of Michel Foucault, Hannah Arendt, Giorgio Agamben, Jacques Rancière, Zygmunt Bauman and Norbert Elias (among others) to stage encounters with biosocial power. I will

democracy, namely popular sovereignty. Here the theory is largely drawn from two sources: on the one hand, from the democratic theory of Ernesto Laclau ( 2005 ) and Chantal Mouffe ( 2000 ) and, on the other, from the political philosophy of Jacques Rancière ( 2006 ). While there are important differences between these thinkers, the crucial commonality is an idea of democratic politics as based on radical dissent that constantly contests given political legitimacy. What Rancière, in particular, highlights is the inherent tension within any democratic polity between the

members themselves. I ask that we, as readers–​ spectators of the argument, become more attentive to the dancing bodies that have interrupted and transfigured our symbolic frameworks across 4 4 Dance and politics space and time. I  have constructed my conceptual framework from a choreographic, critical reading of Jacques Rancière’s concept of dissensus. Rancière sees the essence of politics ‘as the manifestation of dissensus as the presence of two worlds in one’ (Rancière 2010: 37). Dissensus is the collision of two worlds, one intervening in the other and

Mieke Bal’s concept of migratory aesthetics and Jacques Rancière’s distinction between ethics and politics. I also refer to Iain Chambers’ thoughts on migration and modernity in the Mediterranean region, as well as anthropologists Didier Fassin and Richard Rechtman’s analysis of a paradigmatic change in the Western relationship to history, from looping back on and celebrating historical victories to looping back on the history of the wrongs of genocide, colonisation, the trade in enslaved people, etc. Fassin and Rechtman argue that one outcome of this shift is that

manipulating images, and from the construction of dedicated display and exchange systems appropriated from recognisable consumer culture frameworks –​all of which together create a ‘social’ artwork that cannot be addressed merely in terms of its beneficial ‘dialogical’ potential. We are here edging towards that ‘dream of a suitable political work of art’ as imagined by Jacques Rancière, insofar as fundamental to Collins’s efforts is a ‘rupturing’ of ‘the very logic of meaningful situations’: Holiday in someone else’s misery presents a complicated and complicating
