Geschichte(n) des Körpers/ Body Hi/story(ies) investigates different approaches to how we think and make our embodied narratives, personal histories and collective memories. At the centre of the project are questions about how we feel, process and communicate with- and through-- our bodies.

Playing with different modes and possibilities of translation, Geschichte(n) des Körpers/ Hi/story(ies) aims to explore and challenge the dichotomies and correlations associated with body and mind, movement and language, emotion and gesture as well as different modes of translation.

The evening stages a series of artistic as well as theoretical positions that reflect on the exhibition, as well as an open conversation.

The event will be bilingual (English & German).

Please note: The audience will be invited to participate in a somatic exercise. No prior movement experience or training is necessary, but you are encouraged to wear something you will be comfortable moving it.
