“Prosthesis, Metaphor and The Obsolete Body" (2014)

Prosthesis, Metaphor and The Obsolete Body examines representations of the economy of the body by making available and renegotiating medical-historical material. The project emphasizes the conflict between technological change and today’s emerging interest in a "rediscovered corporeality". Through conceptual approximations, fictions and subversive readings will be at centre of our practice. The knowledge production departs from a situated and transdisciplinary perspective, where invited researchers offer the viewer the role to navigate as a medical critic through the images and literary fragments which are presented within the project.”
