In Conversation #7: The Tyranny of Integrity?
- 23.06.2020, 6 p.m. (CET)via Youtube-Livestream
The current pandemic brings forth biopolitics that regulate our bodily interactions. Based on class, labour, economy and other factors, that makes it possible to police and confine bodies, separating out those that are not worthy of living and others that need to be protected. Artists and curators Ong Keng Sen and Boris Ondreicka take their respective experiences of the situation as an impulse for “In Conversation #7”: how to reintegrate the notion of integrity in today’s context beyond individualistic and human-centred ideas of the body?
