AKC Medika / December 2014
The political potential of art lies in the fact that it cannot be reduced to an already existent tradition because it destroys established territories and ways of experiencing the world. Although it emerges in a certain historical and cultural context, it necessarily reconfigures them by opening new worlds and contexts. The institutionalized dominant concept of the human mutates when the established response of the body to a stimulus changes. When an organism perceives a new stimulus, one to which it cannot find a previously established normalized response, a fractal abyss opens between the stimulus-response connection. There is a change in the bodily reaction which requires a redefinition of the affected identity, as well as the environment which has to reintegrate it in the existing territory. The subject is catapulted into an unstable mode of existence – the becoming, a state between the identity from which it was torn out and a new category to which it will be assigned as soon as the deviation from the norm is noticed.
