Critica visual del saber solitario (Visual critique of solitary knowledge) [argues for aesthetics as knowledge / argues that aesthetics should be knowledge] of a body that is being increasingly damaged by the logics of capital. It sets out its argument through three moments, defined as THESIS, CRISIS and CHAOSMOSIS. It starts with the fantasy of the self-sufficient, sovereign, male subject who considers himself capable of understanding and organising a world from which he keeps himself isolated. This is followed by the revolts of 1968 that exploded the traditional forms of representation; and the revolutions of 2011that proposed the positive value of interdependence, collective creation and social activism. From this perspective the academic protocols of the worlds of art are reviewed. The distinctly political intention of this essay is to invite us to decide on what to save and what to condemn of the world that has orientated our forms of understanding.
