AKC Medika / December 2014
The political potential of art lies in the fact that it cannot be reduced to a pre-existing tradition because it disrupts established territories and ways of experiencing the world. Although it emerges in a particular historical and cultural context, it necessarily reconfigures it by opening up new worlds and contexts. The institutionalized dominant concept of man mutates when the body's established response to a stimulus changes. When an organism perceives a new stimulus to which it finds no previously established, normalized response, a fractal chasm opens up between the stimulus-response connection. A change in bodily response occurs, requiring the affected identity to redefine itself, as well as the environment to reintegrate it into the existing territory. The subject is catapulted into an unstable mode of existence - becoming, a state between the identity from which it has been torn and a new category to which it is assigned as soon as the deviation from the norm is noticed.
