Abstract:With the growth of creative economies in many countries worldwide, how does cinematic art address the disappearance of the factory—the symbol of an industrial economy? In this paper, the categorisation of three artistic regimes (ethical, representational and aesthetic) by the French philosopher Jacques Rancière are used to investigate the engagement of cinematic art with the gradual disappearance of factories in modern China. Ethical cinema deals with the factory as part of the everyday activities of a community reconfigured by the decline of traditional industries or a shift to post-industrial production. Representational cinema focuses on factory workers both as a collective and as individuals. In this model, workers are disciplined and docile, and may even be re-trained to suit new divisions of labour in the global economy. In aesthetic cinema, the factory is a mode of experience that elucidates temporal and intellectual equalities. Examining these three cinematic regimes offers critical insights into cinematic art and aesthetics in the context of China’s creative economy.
Keywords:Jacques Rancière, regimes of art, regimes of cinema, ethical regime, representational regime, aesthetic regime, disappearing factory, “made in China,” “created in China”
