Session 106: “Why Has Critique Run out of Steam?” by Bruno Latour
During this Theory Tuesdays session, Christoph Brunner presented Bruno Latour’s essay “Why Has Critique Run out of Steam?”. The text provided a basis for re-thinking critique as a human-centered practice in relation to art.
Drawing the attention toward the multiplicity of processes and things generative of situations of critique, Latour proposes to move from “matters of fact” to “matters of concern” and from “Realpolitik” to “Dingpolitik.” In other words, he underlines a mode of thinking inclusive of more-than-human factors relevant for critique and its undoing.
