Seminar: “Denormalizing Bodies. Rehearsing Citizenship,” Ashkal Alwan

Date: Feb 01, 2016 - Mar 02, 2016

Original post

Relating to the ongoing debate on the interconnections between art, society and the public, Denormalizing Bodies. Rehearsing Citizenship will focus on the body`s capacity for action whithin these dynamics. How do artistic and political modes for action relate? How do physical and movement-based strategies represent, implement, reflect, memorize, aesthetisize, address, legitimize, practise and activate action? How – through the entanglement of physical, performative, digital and urban space – do they re-map material as well as immaterial territories? And how is collectivity experienced and produced in the process?
