1 June 2018 Lecture / Artist Talk at the Strand Bookstore, presented by Think Olio & The Fulbright Program
Body-Space. We exist in the world through our bodies, and our bodies exist supported by our environment / space. In this Olio, we will examine the body as both an active site and a membrane that absorbs and emanates socio-political meaning, as well as biological and ecological matter. Looking to philosophers, choreographers, biologists, and scientists, a web of ideas will give us a conceptual basis to understand what body-space means in our time today.
