The Emancipated Spectator The role of the viewer in art and film theory revolves around a theatrical concept of the spectacle. This title takes a radically different approach to this emancipation. Beginning by asking what we mean by political art or the politics of art, it looks at what the tradition of critical art, and the desire to insert art into life, has achieved.

Rancière's work is to insist that artworks by their nature, present what is possible, rather than actual, in human subjectivity. --JJ Charlesworth, Art Review
His art lies in the rigor of his argument - its careful, precise unfolding - and at the same time not treating his reader, whether university professor or unemployed actress, as an imbecile. --Kristin Ross
