In her writing, Chantal Mouffe deals with the concept of agonism. If I understand it correctly, this is – simply put – “affirmative contestation”. I find this concept extremely stimulating in that in enables the coexistence of differences by not instituting a single permanent “master” (be that the neoliberal model of society or, on a micro level, a dominator that wholly appropriates something…) This is an idea much needed in institutions like art schools which are about not imposing a single mode of producing the ideas and practices of art actions through dominance. The affirmative contestation of ideas is a contest that never ends with finality, and has no winners or losers.
