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.

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

continentalists do not crudely advocate radical contingency, anarchy, insubordination, contestation, rupture or some such aim simply in the place of identity, rule or stability (Markell, 2006: 2). On the contrary, because those such as Ernesto Laclau, Chantal Mouffe, Sheldon Wolin, Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri, and Jacques Rancière do all concede that ‘some sort of rule is unavoidable’, as Markell puts it, their theories are in fact troubled, even while they are enriched, by the paradox that ‘democracy’ means both the ideal of popular rule in which ‘the people’ (‘we’) rule

lament. It has also shown how in a very direct sense, images are personal. The way I ‘receive’ images is not only a story about the image but also about me. No image is received abstractly; cognitively it is viewed and categorised by each viewer. The work done in the conjoined acts of viewing and categorising is profoundly emotional and it requires us to explore further the kinds of emotional dynamics that often emerge in the representation of suffering. Images and emotions The speaking image Jacques Ranciere (2009: 33) defines the image as both a representation and

exclude them from the political and physical spaces of the city. In chapter 5, I turn to the activism and politics of anarchist homeless activists in resisting the cities’ attempts to exclude the homeless. I turn to two important political theorists to make sense of the resistance of Food Not Bombs: Jacques Rancière and Eduard Glissant. Rancière’s short piece “Ten theses on politics” provides a powerful understanding of the way that disruptive actions and resistance expand political space, while Glissant’s idea of right to opacity examines the complex relationship of

). 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
