abstract

This chapter offers an insight into Le Roy’s ‘performed exhibition’ and argues that dance, when taking place in museums, draws the viewer’s attention to the fact that all artworks in the museum are performative in their address to spectators that bring the work about. Looking into the creation of a public in the museum space, I will unpack the public’s ongoing redefinition of the relation between aesthetics and subjectivity, which I see as a way of producing a notion of aesthetic subjectivity. The chapter ultimately shows how the situations created in Retrospective produce a notion of aesthetic subjectivity that takes place after modernism.
