Özet

Asserting ideas on the politics of art, political art, and the social function of art initially requires the development of a reflexive approach, and a comprehensive understanding of both art and politics. Such critical actions may also provide an appropriate basis for the discussion about whether art can possess a unique politics of its own distinction. One of the original perspectives with regards to this issue has been proposed by Jacques Ranciere in his 'Aesthetic Regime' conceptualization. Through the perspective of the 'Aesthetic Regime', he manifests that by the end of the 18th century art becomes political insofar as art and politics are correlated with the (dis) sensual experiences and the (re) distribution of the sensible. In terms of its political potential, art could no longer be considered as 'the ways of doing or making' as it were in mimetic or representational traditions/regimes of the past, which enables the concordance amongst senses and operates as a pedagogical model in Ranciere's point of view.
