What is the ‘modern’ body?
Philosophy, religion, spirituality, science and technology all challenge the idea of limiting the body to what is contained within the skin. The purpose of the festival is to investigate this extension of how we define our bodies, and how we experience them, through art.
The first ever edition of A Modern Body Festival will take place on 18 Oct 2014, at Anna@RW47, the former Europol building in The Hague, from 13:00 on. It will be an intimate, full-day event, full of installations, performances, film screenings and a lecture, exploring our search for the ‘modern’ body.
• Installations and screenings, distributed all over our extraordinary location, from artists Barbara Ellison, Chaja Hertog & Nir Nadler, Jeanette Groenendaal & Zoot Derks, Kaisu Koski, Stelios Manousakis, Tivon Rice & Nico Varchausky, and Ludmila Rodrigues & Mike Rijnierse;
• Live performance sets by artists Francisco Lopéz & Valentina Lacmanovi?, Alberto Novello, and Center no Distractor
• Lecture by architect/media artist Sonia Cillari
