Bodies are political! Bodies and their movement(s) are an expression of our self, but also a place of multifaceted culminating experiences of discrimination. Social perspectives such as body standardisation, performance thinking, capitalist exploitation mechanisms, biological and gender attributions come into play.
We want to understand movement not only in its physiological dimension, but also in its social and political dimensions. In this event we will deal with body(ies), movement(s) and their socio-cultural and political dimensions in a variety of ways and from different perspectives.
Questions that might be asked are: Which stigmatisation is experienced by which bodies in which places? Which accesses are open to which bodies, which are denied? Which individual and collective strategies are developed and applied to create access, to be heard, to be seen? What influence does the Covid-19 pandemic have on these discourses? What kind of formats are to be developed in order to provide a space for movement experiences that is as free of discrimination as possible and corresponds to the relationship to the body, physical possibilities and personal interests?
We are looking forward to the exchange on body politics and experiences with and in movement, but also to practical movement offers in which the above mentioned topics are reflected.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
All those who deal with the topic of body and movement from different perspectives, motivations and concerns are cordially invited, such as people interested in movement, activists, athletes, performing artists, scientists, pedagogical staff, teachers.
