In The Future of the Image, Jacques Ranciere develops a
fascinating new concept of the image in contemporary art, showing
how art and politics have always been intrinsically intertwined.
Covering a range of art movements, filmmakers such as Godard and
Bresson, and thinkers such as Foucault, Deleuze, Adorno, Barthes,
Lyotard and Greenberg, Ranciere shows that contemporary theorists
of the image are suffering from religious tendencies.
He argues that there is a stark political choice in art: it can
either reinforce a radical democracy, or create a new reactionary
mysticism. For Ranciere there is never a pure art: the aesthetic
revolution must always embrace egalitarian ideals.
