Abstract (English)

"Banality designates an impassive present placed at the threshold of contingency, located in the unfolding of a desired novelty that may come to matter and as the mutability of lives that endure within it. In taking up an aesthetic challenge to treat the banal in its banality rather than as a situation waiting to become new, passable, and livable (or as a situation yet to be identified as such), Wangert attends to the different modes of political activity and subjectivity articulable only within the idiom of banality. Dead Time: Intolerable Images and the Politics of Banality moves between a politics of aesthetics and an aesthetics of politics in order to offer an analysis of our impassive present." --Publisher's website.
