Britney Spears video
...anyway this is a better example than all that about renaissance drama:
They hired a bare arse double for this video*; it's meant to be something like:
this unexpected social convention, a red hot bared arse projected out of the usual neolib austerity, this estrangement invites one to "spiritualise" the social world as it appears**; to find society tiered, and so, in a way, artistic.
This seems to be what Pierre Bourdieu missed: that bourgeois art isn't made in the image of bourgeois man, but is rather constituted as a compliment of the major bourgeois idea: bourgeois individualism; and as such this art is quite often presented as a series of imaginary exoteric networks, such as can be observed.
*surely an original stage in the progress of division of labour
**what Lacan imprudently generalises in his "big other" theory
