This article offers an analysis of some of the concepts related to aesthetics from the perspective of Jacques Rancière. The hypothesis that we are trying to address assumes that the critical art of denunciation and unmasking reproduces the explanatory order, which at the same time shows the ineffectiveness of aesthetic education This is due to at least three reasons: it ignores the inversion of criticism, it separates intelligence in two, and it reproduces the model of the distribution of the sensible. Finally, we address the practice of aesthetic emancipation through the equality of intelligences.
