Rancière and Occupy (in) London: An Interview with A.N.Onymous

  • Samuel Burgum

Abstract

Based upon an interview with the activist A.N.Onymous that was published on the Theory, Culture & Society website, this article seeks to indicate some of the ways in which the theory of Jacques Rancière might be useful for a critical and reflective understanding of Occupy (in) London. A.N.ON’s insights into the movement and the theory are elaborated throughout using Rancière’s concepts in order to suggest some of the ways that they might inform each other, covering such themes as: expertise; authority; horizontality and democracy; the politics of aesthetics; as well as the importance of space in resistance.
