New Subjectivities

The Future Body

The rapid development of body-related technologies, neurosciences and psychoanalysis in the 19th century instituted an era of body control and introverted focus upon the singular body. Today we see the body in a site of the crisis. Whilst being excessively perfected, it is also increasingly eradicated from many spheres of our daily existence into the digital, body-less realm. The project asks what is the socio-political function and value of the body today? Could it be a pedagogical tool for social and cultural exchange rather than a site for the solitary pursuit of perfection and ultimately, a commodity? The project aims to give the body agency in civic life through a series of water infused, civic and cultural edifices.
