Jacques Arènes : party and religion : a space for subjectivation

The party was born in the environment of religion, but the religious feast has evolved in its content and aims. The « we » is giving way to the boosting of narcissism and the search for subjectivation. Some aspects of the religious feast are today invested as spaces for conversion and self-transformation. In every case the subject will adhere to the religious « we » intermittently, in moments of fused capillarity, which may be renewed over time, but will not necessarily join a church. The festive will be both the moment for encountering God and the imagined scene of confrontation with one’s own destiny.
