"Re-embodiment and Dis/abilities"

Passcode: 1835021672

This research workshop-symposium, the second of two (April 28/June 16) is intended to challenge our assumptions about bodies, difference and notions of 'otherness' in the arts. It is above all meant to “unmute" our bodies, to challenge troubled ontologies and the freedom to move in this era of pandemics. The term dis/abilities also needs unlabeling; we believe it is important to explore practices and discussions around how mixed ability and disability are defined in the arts and in our culture – as well as in the current shift to online/zoom conferencing & teaching. Who is 'included' when we talk about 'other' bodies or 'non-normative' practice, who is talked over, which lives matter, what can we learn from un-labeling, and overcoming isolation, how we can collectively imagine our re-integrations into presence and corporeal interaction in inter-pandemic society.
