Waiting for the event

By paraphrasing the title of Samuel Beckett's key dramatic text in the title of this article, we indicate the capacity of art to define time. To what extent its influence extends to reality is a question inscribed in the very foundations of its social meanings, which, at the same time, also stimulates the emergence of artistic events. Starting from the introductory layout of concepts in the relationship between art and politics in Miško Šuvakovi?'s book Art and Politics [Umetnost i politika], we are interested in the concept of event developed (non)definitively by Alain Badiou. The politics of art is an epistemological problem rather than an aesthetic one. At numerous intersections of social, power- and production-related practices, art and politics serve one another as the medium of waiting for the event. Speaking of various definitions of the relationship between art and life, the Dadaist movement proves relevant for subsequent times in a paradigmatic sense.
