“Art as counterpublics? Modes of resistance in contemporary culture”

Ewa Majewska


This article discusses the art projects, which fulfill the function of counterpublics, which I understand, following Nancy Fraser, Alexander Kluge and Oskar Negt, as a critique of the political institutions, which also undermines the public/private divide. Some recent artistic productions in Poland have generated such forms of critique and resistance, allowing voices and demands of various oppressed minorities not only to be represented, but also to enter and nitiate public debates and transform the modes of contestation. They imply another resistance and critique, which overcome the heroic modes of articulation, thus enacting the weak, marginalized and ordinary as political agency.

Słowa kluczowe: art, feminist art, resistance, critique, counterpublics
