COSTA, Luis Artur  e  FONSECA, Tania Mara Galli. The un-natured habit: how to kill the time in the art of the contemporary life. Rev.Mal-Estar Subj [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.3-4, pp. 619-642. ISSN 1518-6148.

Habit is an immanence plan where actions are composed and the subjectivities are built. Singular and general at the same time, it is a privileged territory for the micropolitics of desire. The present article intends to reflect on these aspects and consider the implications of creating habits in the specific context of contemporaneity, in which the demands for constant identity change and for the polyvalence of workers end up creating a new paradox in the processes of subjectification: the habit of getting out of habits. Considering this context, we approach specificities of the stylistic of contemporary subjectification from an aesthetic perspective: the art of constructing life. Such perspective approximates us to the art world problems, considering how the artistic avant-gardes and counterculture in general have been assimilated by contemporary capitalism (society of control, society of the spectacle, consumer society, etc.). The way the difference is disciplined in our times is an urgent issue, because when transgression is captured by common sense many are the reactions that, in trying to resist to the new imperatives, end up returning to the conservative and fixed logic of the disciplinary society. We intend to propose in this essay a possible flight from the double capture between obedience and disciplined transgression, searching elements to escape from judgment trough experimentation and transforming duty in potency.
