The mediatization of politics so described is part of what has become known as the cultural shift in politics and, more contentiously, a feature of the reworking of modern politics. In the concluding chapter to this book, John Street argues persuasively that politics should be understood as a form of popular culture, because politics communicates through the techniques and rhetorics of a variety of mass (and, it should be said, new and ‘remediated’) media forms. Politics seen as a form of ‘artistic expression’ appears novel, even quirky, but Street does not claim that what results is obviously a ‘new’ sort of politics, rather, that judgements about politics and political players are now aesthetic judgements.
