Event Type: performances, &, roundtable, discussions
Latest Activity: Feb 6, 2015
Performances by Joan Laage (USA), Boaz Barkan (Denmark) and Luanda Carneiro Jacoel (Brazil/Norway) will be interspersed by roundtable discussions to explore the themes of Somatic Archiving and the Performance of Memory.
Philosophical and performative questions include:
How can we archive, collect or disseminate corporeal memories?
Does reawakening the past pre-mediate or anticipate future physical and cultural forms?
What political & social implications are revealed when historical memory is accessed and restaged through the living body?
This event is part of the Performing Memory strand of the larger research project Living Archives at Malmö University in Sweden.
Admission is free.
