Flesh and Stone

Foucault’s term “technologies of the self” referred to Ancient Greece
and Rome. This course will use it as starting point to examine
aesthetic practices of individuals in everyday culture as well as art,
in historical and social context: “embodiments”. We will pay special
attention to a gender related interpretation, where the body is seen
as trading place of images, of techniques of representation and
presence as well as the kaleidoscopic relation between image, body and
performative act.

Thursdays, 10.00-11.30, Room M20. Starts: 10.10.2013
