Performing shame: alignments between aesthetic gestures, structures of feeling, and value judgments

Forskningsoutput: KonferensbidragKonferensabstract

Abstract

In this paper, I discuss artworks in which the artists make use of the affect of shame to problematize art fields as “structures-of-feeling” (Williams, 1977), from feminist, queer and anti-racist perspectives. Based on Sara Ahmed’s (2010) suggestion that feelings may be how structures get under our skin I argue that these artworks critically depict the role that emotions play for the compliance to and maintenance of dominant values and meanings in various fields of art.
