art, sensation, people, Deleuze, politics


As something that in the same time communicates through its materiality and its abstraction (of ideas, thoughts and conceptual forms), art remains in the field of partially conceivable complexity. Its availability reveals itself more in doing, and less in its interpretative potential. Art is thus revealed through the sensation. Art is inventing the way of becoming by turning to the future, to the people who are yet to come. This paper discusses the questions of art as sensation, art and commodity and art and people, concentrating on genesis of the art that invokes (future)
people that can be and become exactly through and with the sensation.
