LISTIK, Yonathan. AESTHETIC REGIME'S OCCUPATION OF REPRESENTATION. Kriterion [online]. 2018, vol.59, n.139, pp.309-326. ISSN 1981-5336.

This article explores the relationship between aesthetics and representation in Jacques Rancière's theory. According to the author, representation is simultaneously present and prohibited in modern aesthetics. It appears as a parasite or an intruder in artistic production. Rancière asks: under what conditions is representation prohibited and what happens when art does not represent? The central axis in the analysis explores the consequences of this configuration, with emphasis on politics. According to Rancière, the concept of distribution of the sensible invariably implies a regime of life and, therefore, some sort of politics. Hence, aesthetics is not limited to arts, reaching life as a whole. The relationship between aesthetics and representation necessarily implies a mode of life where representation becomes impossible in all senses.

Keywords : Aesthetics; Representation; Politics.
