    What is the state of critique today?: A conversation with Anders Johansson, Sharon Rider and Malin Rönnblom2011In: Eurozine, ISSN 1684-4637, no 2011-10-12Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Is what is taken for critique today genuinely self-questioning or merely the confirmation of the moral consensus? In the neoliberal culture of the audit, has critique been deprived of its role as check on ideology? And does preference for impact-oriented research produce political compliance rather than independent critical thought?

    Aesthetics of evil: Adorno vs. the ethical turn2008In: Framing evil: portraits of terror and the imagination / [ed] Nancy Billias & Agnes B Curry, Oxford: Inter-Disciplinary Press , 2008, p. 3-12Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The outset for the paper is the widespread notion that literature is better suited than philosophy for understanding and relating experiences of evil. A problem with this supposedly post-metaphysical notion, exemplified by an essay written by María Pía Lara, is that it implies a metaphysical conception of an inherent goodness in literature. To find a more critical approach, the paper turns to Theodor W. Adorno and his comments on poetry after Auschwitz. From his perspective evil is just as present in the interior of every artwork, as in society in general - literature is no less evil than anything else. Due to its material character, however, every artwork does harbour a possibility of understanding and reconciliation that philosophical thinking lacks. Finally, two examples are used to illustrate Adorno’s points: Michael Haneke’s film Funny Games, and the Swedish novel Äldreomsorgen i övre Kågedalen by Nikanor Teratologen. Both could be seen as two extremely cruel narrations of evil, totally lacking all reconciliation. The point is that a reconciliation can be found in the interior of the works, however. In that way, the two works demonstrate a sensibility of the immanent violence of their own form.

    Commodification and subjectivization: toward a critique of the authorship discourse2014In: Nordic Journal of Aesthetics, ISSN 2000-1452, E-ISSN 2000-9607, no 47, p. 125-142Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What does it mean that the author increasingly turns into a commodity? The article contains a discussion of some academic responses – taken from celebrity studies and autofiction studies – to this tendency. The texts discussed share an effort to rethink authorship, but nonetheless the implicit result is a reinforcement of a traditional, romantic notion of the author. Above all there is a lack of reflection on subjectivity in the authorship discourse, where concepts like “author”, “subject”, “self” often are treated as synonymous. In that sense the academic responses are part of the commodification they ought be studying. On another level this commodification could be understood as an expression of a more general crisis of subjectivity: there is a need of stories about autonomous subjects just because of a more extensive desubjectivation. Finally the article turns to Theodor W. Adorno and Jacques Rancière in order to find a more dynamic and apt understanding of subjectivity.

    'Det är bara en lek.': Adorno och sportens lekfullhet2011In: Kulturella perspektiv - Svensk etnologisk tidskrift, ISSN 1102-7908, Vol. 20, no 2, p. 43-46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There’s a saying that sport is just a game, meaning that it’s not that important if you lose. Although it is easy to dismiss this as a false statement, the essay argues, with the German philosopher Theodor W Adorno, that it is the fact that sport is a game, a play, that gives it a critical potential. Like all games sport has the power to reveal that what we regard as real and necessary could be different. Sport has the potential to release rationality itself from its forced instrumentality – in that sense it resembles art. However, since sport is captive in a larger instrumental project this potential can’t be realized. In Adorno’s perspective, a child’s play is different in that sense: it opens itself to a “beyond” in the most mundane things, which thus disclose a dangerous promise that everything might be different.

    ‘It’s Been Edifying, Don’t You Say?’: The Dialectic of Evil in Lars von Trier’s Dogville 2011In: Constructing Good and Evil / [ed] Laura Torres Zuñiga, Isabel Mª Andrés Cuevas, Oxford: Inter-Disciplinary Press , 2011, 1, p. 127-134Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The article is an attempt to show that Lars von Trier’s film Dogville (2003) may be understood as an effort to break down the pact of goodness between the viewer and the film. Every work of art, the author argues, implies a silent contract between the subject (the viewer, reader, etc.) and the object (the film, book, etc.), saying that no matter how horrible the story depicted is, the aesthetic experience is ethically edifying to the subject. Drawing on the French philosopher Alain Badiou, the author contends that this implicit ethics is reactive and nihilist: the goodness of art depends on a more fundamental idea of evil. The discussion circulates primarily around a crucial moment in the end of the film, when the whole setting is turned around, and the merciful victim becomes a cold blooded executioner. One way to understand this moment is to say that von Trier rips the ethical contract, with a very confusing result. What von Trier tells us is, in a way, that we’re all stuck in a rudimentary fiction of goodness, which is kept up by contrasting narratives of evil.

    The Necessity of Over-interpretation: Adorno, the Essay and the Gesture of Aesthetic Experience2013In: Estetika, ISSN 0014-1291, Vol. 50, no 2, p. 149-168Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is a discussion of Theodor W. Adorno's comment, in the beginning of 'The Essay as Form', that interpretations of essays are over-interpretations. I argue that this statement is programmatic, and should be understood in the light of Adorno's essayistic ideal of configuration, his notion of truth, and his idea of the enigmatic character of art. In order to reveal how this over-interpreting appears in practice, I turn to Adorno's essay on Kafka. According to Adorno, the reader of Kafka is caught in an aporia: Kafka's work cannot be interpreted, yet every single sentence calls for interpretation. This paradox is related to the gestures and images in Kafka's work: like Walter Benjamin, Adorno means that they contain sedimented, forgotten experiences. Instead of interpreting these images, Adorno visualizes the experiences indirectly by presenting images of his own. His own essay becomes gestural.

    Vad var kritiken?: Om aktivism, cynism och kritisk teori2016In: K & K: kultur og klasse : kritik og kulturanalyse, ISSN 0905-6998, E-ISSN 2246-2589, Vol. 44, no 122, p. 123-140Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article tries to question the premises of the critical subject. Is critique, understood as a subjective judgement, still possible, or have we reached a medial and political situation where this is no longer an option? The article turns to Horkheimer and Adorno and confronts their ideal of a critical theory with the criticism directed to it from Peter Sloterdijk. Somehow the critical thinking which the Frankfurt School inaugurated seems to have taken two directions today: either a cynical, resigned one, or an activist one. The article argues that both may be understood as attempts to preserve the subject, in the same way as Adorno was accused of by Sloterdijk. In that perspective, the possibility of critique may appear to be non-existent. However, if critique is understood, with Luc Boltanski, not as an activity performed by an individual critic, but rather by an institution, by society, the situation appears in a different light. This is, the article argues, the necessary step to take: to liberate criticism from individualism, and understand the individual critic not as the origin of critique, but as its medium.

    What was Love?: On the Dialectic of Mediation2017In: SIC, ISSN 1847-7755, Vol. 7, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Love has traditionally been understood either as an objective, transcendentforce, or a subjective ability. Through a number of steps,the article argues that both these options have lost their credibility due to changes in the media through which love is performed. First, the article demonstrates how the attempts,in the life sciences, to explain love biologically or physically reproduce a traditional romantic ideology. Then, the implications of the inflation of explicit love declarations, and the consequences of internet dating, are discussed. What these examples amount to is the fact that the medium is brought to the fore. A consequence of this is that the romantic ideology is strengthened, while the premises of romantic love – the autonomous subject and the transcendent objectivity – are weakened or even dissolved.
