In addition to direct, head-to-head political action, there is political instrumentality in indirect techniques or aesthetic regimes that may, after Jacques Rancière and others, generate dissensus rather than resistance.

In this realm of dissensus one finds an extended repertoire of trouble making and leverage that often includes, not the opposition of tense resistance and competition, but rather gifts, compliance, misdirection/distraction, meaninglessness, comedy, and spatial contagions.
