Composed in a series of scenes, Aisthesis - Ranciere's definitive statement on the aesthetic - takes its reader from Dresden in 1764 to New York in 1941. Along the way, we view the Belvedere Torso with Winckelmann, accompany Hegel to the museum and Mallarme to the Folies-Bergere, attend a lecture by Emerson, visit exhibitions in Paris and New York, factories in Berlin, and film sets in Moscow and Hollywood. Ranciere uses these sites and events - some famous, others forgotten - to ask what becomes art and what comes of it. He shows how a regime of artistic perception and interpretation was constituted and transformed by erasing the specificities of the different arts, as well as the borders that separated them from ordinary experience. This incisive study provides a history of artistic modernity far removed from the conventional postures of modernism.

"Exhilarating... Ranciere's most thoroughgoing polemic against the received idea of modernism." - Artforum "Jacques Ranciere's Aisthesis transforms the field of aesthetic philosophy." - Liberation "French philosopher Jacques Ranciere is a refreshing read for anyone concerned with what art has to do with politics and society." - Art Review "In the face of impossible attempts to proceed with progressive ideas within the terms of postmodernist discourse, Ranciere shows a way out of the malaise." - Liam Gillick "It's clear that Jacques Ranciere is relighting the flame that was extinguished for many - that is why he serves as such a signal reference today." - Thomas Hirschhorn "Far from the grand narratives of modernism that claim the language of art progresses in the search for purity - modernity breaks down the hierarchy between spheres of culture, disturbing the boundaries between art and life - [Ranciere] analyzes a series of moments from this other history that could only be written in proliferating fragments - this aesthetic 'regime' conditions the forms of art and democracy in an era of the permanent emergence of new sovereign subjects." - Le Monde "Since The Division of the Sensible - Ranciere has been reminding those who would separate the wheat from the chaff in contemporary creative practices that art only exists as an unstable boundary that must be continually crossed. In Aisthesis the philosopher develops his thinking, drawing fifteen scenes of a counter-history of artistic modernity." - Le Magazine Litteraire "Such is the clarity and complexity of Ranciere's thought here, and so intimate is he with the writings excerpted and the works to which they refer, that one has to conclude that this is a fundamental test of his broader conceptions of artistic, literary, and political history." - ArtInfo "Such is the clarity and complexity of Ranciere's thought here, and so intimate is he with the writings excerpted and the works to which they refer, that one has to conclude that this is a fundamental test of his broader conceptions of artistic, literary, and political history." - Brian Dillon, Modern Painters "... a magisterial book of great scope and ambition that has the capacity to alter how we understand the artistic culture of the past 200 years." - Los Angeles Review of Books
