Vulnerability is a topic that engages both the sociologist and performance theorist Gurur Ertem and the political scientist Banu Bargu. As part of the series ‘Unversehrtheit: Conversations on the Integrities of the Body’, they talk with Sandra Noeth about self-chosen or imposed performances of intactness and woundedness in the context of current political protests and violent acts of self-harm directed against one’s own body. Between biopolitics and radical self-empowerment, the question remains how art and science can contribute to understanding this increasingly ambivalent experience of the body’s integrity.
