Rancière makes use of those websites and events—some recognized, others forgotten—to ask what turns into artwork and what comes of it. He indicates how a regime of inventive belief and interpretation used to be constituted and reworked through erasing the specificities of different arts, in addition to the borders that separated them from usual adventure. This incisive examine presents a historical past of inventive modernity some distance faraway from the normal postures of modernism.
