Re: more space

I suggest having a look at David Carroll's book "Paraaesthetics"
which offers an interesting reading of Foucault on art and
literature alongside Lyotard and Derrida. In fact, in his chapters on
Lyotard and Derrida he directly addresses the question of whether art
can be 'truly' radical etc. Carroll ties together the problem of
art being `art' in terms of its limits, its designation or
definition and the apparent paradox implicit in Lyotard's notion of
the postmodern as anterior to the modern- or in the case of Derrida
the (im)possibility of art transgressing its `frame'.
