Location: First Floor Workshop Space
The art theorist and curator Sofia Eliza Bouratsis is a PhD candidate at Université Paris 1 – Panthéon-Sorbonne, conducting research on the body, its images and its social, philosophical, scientific and political boundaries, as they are expressed in contemporary art. Her talk is inspired by her experience as facilitator in the Αbramović Method and is based on a philosophical approach to the history of the body in art and more specifically, on the -extremely serious- game with body limits in performance art. Finally, she will mention the aesethetics of the body in the Αbramović Method.
