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.
