“In Conversation #6” approaches the idea of the integrities of the body from the perspective of im/purity. Soumyabrata Choudhury – based on observations from the Indian context – and Siegmar Zacharias – reflecting on her artistic practice with uncontrollable material such as slime or drool – discuss how bodies become bordering territories in the process: how is a body’s capacity to participate in society linked to and defined by imaginations and representations of shame, danger, or uncleanness? How are political forms of control and governance enforced by embodied, visceral, and affective experiences?
