“Body is not what it is used to be”
This one-day event, which will take place at Salt Beyoğlu on 9th of November, Sunday, presents ongoing artistic researches and some of the implementations that focus on gesture/movement based technologies extending different bodies. While new technologies extend and change the bodies we preferred to make a special emphasis on the disabilities. We call it different bodies but not disabled, since each single body has its own communication and performance capacities, which are not indeed subject of disability but divergence. Bodies’ future lays in new technologies. Technology is increasing the diversity of the bodies and blurring the borders of the body, as well as its perception.
In this day the audience is the participant. Participants will watch the presentations and discuss the topics; experience different technologies and learn and create with others along the day. All the presentations and workshops are designed for different bodies. Differently-abled people are encouraged to participate and very welcome. The technologies of body and movement in the space can only be discussed with the participation of diverse bodies.
Event curated and organized by Ekmel Ertan, realized with the participation of Robert Wechsler, Tuğçe Tuna, Şafay Uysal, Nilüfer Kozikoğlu, Paola Tognazzi, Mutlu Güngör, Ezgi Baştuğ, Jaime de Val ve Nimish Biloira.
