His work crosses over the fields of social history, politics, aesthetics, film studies and literature. Among his works recently translated into English are Aisthesis. Fourteen Scenes from the Aesthetic Regime of Art (Verso, 2013) and The Intervals of Cinema (Verso, 2014). Previous books include Disagreement: Politics and PhilosophyThe Politics of Aesthetics, On the Shores of Politics, Hatred of Democracy, and The Emancipated Spectator.
