Architecture and the body

06-playboy-round-bed-bedroomOn Thursday October 17th Erika Artaker and Jakob Neulinger will be guests in a roundtable in our lecture. We will discuss the relationship between body and space through the connections of action and everyday life. For instance, the ones that can be seen in architecture and in the city. We will also show examples in films of body action and perception within the urban fabric and open spaces. Besides that, the concepts of heterotopia (Foucault) and pornotopia (Preciado) will be introduced. The contexts in which mechanisms of body control and technologies of sexuality take place will also be examined.
