Resumen

ACOSTA, María del Rosario  y  QUINTANA, Laura. From an Aesthetization of Politics to the "Inoperative" Community. rev.estud.soc. [online]. 2010, n.35, pp.53-65. ISSN 0123-885X.

This article shows that the notion of an "aesthetization of politics" entails much more than the mere translation of aesthetic criteria into politics. The task of thinking about a non-aesthetiziced political realm, therefore, demands even more radical readings than those suggested, for instance, by the proposal of the "politicization of art." Following Nancy, Lacoue-Labarthe and Esposito, we argue that an aesthetiziced notion of politics seeks to turn the political into a work of art. This idea has predominated through the western tradition since it is precisely in this context that community is understood as a "work" to be produced, as an activity proper to subjectivity (either individual or collective) that involves the "production" of its own essence. The article concludes that the urgent interruption of aesthetiziced politics demands a renewed consideration of our being-in-common, which takes into account the possibility of a radical alterity and our openness to finitude.

Palabras clave : Aesthetics; politics; community; myth; J.L. Nancy; Lacoue-Labarthe; R. Esposito.
