How does the (d)evaluation of  (care-)work play out, depending on whose body is seen as producing it, in the supposedly post-feminist, post author, post-everything artworld?

(with Danica Dakic, Anki Hannemann) semester project 18 credits

The (individual) body’s encounter with space, the experience of its limitations and delimitation corresponds in every case to the question of the individual in relation to society and their respective power relations. But how does the body open a space through performative movement and how does it develop there – when is body disciplined, when undisciplined?  Funded by Goethe Institute
