This month: Regime Change: Jacques Rancière and Contemporary Art.

So many of the questions posed by the French thinker Jacques Rancière are of singular importance to contemporary art now: What is, after all, the relationship between art and politics? Where does arts greatest potential rest, taking into account its engagements and affiliations with market forces? How should one think about various artists stagings of social interaction, or even of the self?

Jacques Rancière never left the gambling table of politics, where everything is played out. On the contrary, he is redistributing the cards. Thomas Hirschhorn

Also: Cover artist Allen Ruppersberg curates First Thought Best ThoughtAllen Ginsberg, a meditation on poetics populated with artworks by Marcel Broodthaers, Jef Geys, Guy de Cointet, and many others.

If I were to think like an art critic, I would approach the work through the language of art, and if I were to try and express a similar idea speaking about language as artor literary criticismI would be talking about the laws of poetry. Oh, no, I sighed to myself. The laws of poetry? What is wrong with you?Allen Ruppersberg
