. 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

systems. It has been seen that the economy, in principle, is just one of those systems, and that FD is and remains the defining feature of sociological modernity. Endowed with the appropriate constitutions and inter-​systemic mediations, FD might provide decisive im­petus for the transition from political statehood to social statehood. Notes 1 Colin Crouch, David Held, Wolfgang Streeck, Jacques Rancière, and Wendy Brown, amongst many others, are all grappling with this question. For an analysis of the most important questions involved, see David Gonsalves

that an aesthetics of care can be a demonstration, a showing of caring, but, more significantly, it can be the actual moment of building a more just distribution of caring and increase participants’ capacity to care and be cared for. The understanding of aesthetics here is, on the one hand broad, signalling aesthetic in the sense of the appreciation of something crafted, artistic or beautiful. However, on the other hand, I am also using it in a more particular sense borrowed from the work of Jacques Rancière and his framework of the ‘distribution of the sensible

over their interpretation quickly involve accusations of betrayal. Among those, like Alain Badiou, Jacques Rancière and indeed Feenberg, who retain their conviction that willed, wholesale changes of social system in wealthy countries remain possible and desirable, 1968 stands as confirmation. As such, their collective memory is an ideological bulwark against cynicism and nihilism, both of which serve as gateway drugs to political apathy and capitulation. This has a profound bearing on the mature thought of the philosophers of the class of ’68. Feenberg’s theory is

consequences must be joined in perception. This relationship is what gives meaning; to grasp it is the objective of all intelligence’ (1934: 44). For Dewey, ‘with the vast extension of its scope to take in (potentially) anything and everything, art would have lost its unity, were there not a core of common substance’, namely, the forging of profound feeling, efficacy or consequence in the experience of making of receiving art (1934: 191). Dewey’s claim for the categorical indiscriminateness of art, bound by a ‘common substance’, anticipates Jacques Rancière’s more recent

the importance of the written word, both to the filmmakers’ relationship and to this particular tribute. Jacques Rancière argues that Marker is giving a lesson on memory in this film, which involves the hierarchical organisation of word over image (Rancière 2006 : 168–69). While we might agree with Rancière when he says that Marker uses words to explain images, we are in fact being taught to question
