The definitive statement on aesthetics and the history of modernism from one of France's most renowned philosophers. Composed of a series of scenes that defined modernism, Aisthesis 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 Mallarm to the Folies-Bergre, attend a lecture by Emerson, visit exhibitions in Paris and New York, factories in Berlin, and film sets in Moscow and Hollywood. Rancire uses these sites and events to ask what becomes art and what comes from it. This incisive study provides a history of artistic modernity far removed from the conventional postures of modernism.

Jacques Rancire's Aisthesis transforms the field of aesthetic philosophy. * Libration * French philosopher Jacques Rancire 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, Rancire shows a way out of the malaise. -- Liam Gillick It's clear that Jacques Rancire 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 ... [Rancire] 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 ... Rancire 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 Littraire *
