[eDebate] spectators are not passive (subverting stultification in rhetorical performance)

apropos of recent threads regarding the impossibility of 'non-intervention',
i highly recommend the following lecture by jacques ranciere entitled "the
emancipated spectator" :
http://www.v2v.cc/node/75 (you might have to download bittorrent and vlc
media player. takes about 4 minutes for the introduction to begin, and 8
minutes and 30 seconds for ranciere to speak. there's also some mic feedback
problems, flaring up badly around the 11th minunte, but the sound becomes
clear at 12:30 for the rest of the lecture, especially if you set your audio
equalizer to 'live'.)
although the ideas expressed deal primarily with the theater, the role of
performance, community and pedagogy in intellectual emancipation bears
tremendously on academic debate (specifically the lines of thinking pursued
by kevin kuswa and gordon mitchell).
if his french accent breaks your concentration, the march issue of artforum
republished an edited version of the lecture alongside some intriguing
photographic art. unfortunately, they didn't put the text online, but here's
some introductory remarks by kristin ross and an interview of ranciere by
fulvia carnevale and john kelsey :
any question i'm competent to answer, i'll try my best.
