Seminar: To perform Body

What is old? And how do we work with ageing in the fields of art, craft, film and performance? On Thursday March 31st the seminar To Perform Body will discuss ageing in relation to artistic design with some of the most prominent researchers, scholars and artists in the field. The seminar provides examples of how artists worked with ageing as a theme – the transience of material, and its significance for memories and stories. The older body’s capability and the view of ageing and the importance of culture for healthy ageing are other aspects that are addressed. The seminar discusses how art and culture perform body, but also discusses and makes visible the bodies that perform, make and participate in art and culture.

Date: 31 March 2022
Time: 09:45 am – 4:45 pm
Place: Campus Steneby, Dals Långed
