THE INTERPASSIVE TRANSFORMATION OF DEMOCRATIC LIFE, THE HABITAT OF INTERPASSIVITY, THE SPHERE OF ART
Gijs van Oenen suggests that we have become overburdened by the responsibilities implied by emancipatory citizenship, and hence we tend to outsource elements of our daily responsibilities to external institutions, organizations, and designs. Alongside political and legal intervention, supervision and control is increasingly exercised through new forms of environmental design, that may physically or electronically guide or restrain us whenever we threaten to transgress the norms of society. It is via these contexts that van Oenen discusses the concept of interpassivity in relation to art.
