In this interview, Jacques Rancière clarifies a number of the central concepts and underlying polemics that run throughout his considerable body of work. Touching on key aspects of his intellectual formation, including his experience teaching at the University of Vincennes in Saint-Denis in the wake of May 1968 and his pivotal research in worker's archives, Rancière also reflects on the intimate relation between his critical project—above all its affirmation of axiomatic equality—and the development of his singular writing style.
