In classical sociology, the arts were perceived as the sphere of individual compensation for social alienation and, as such, rather marginal for sociological consideration. This attribution has changed massively since the 1960s. From that point, sociological theory began to ascribe to the arts the role of a ‚primary coding‘ of society. The paper juxtaposes the well-known approaches of Pierre Bourdieu, Niklas Luhmann and Antoine Hennion with the artistic work of Christoph Schlingensief and explores the fundamental challenges that sociological theory finds itself confronted with in view of Schlingensief’s artistic position.
