With: ​Marwa Arsanios, Perel, Ian Kaler, Mischa Leinkauf and Caglar Yigitogullari

Curated by Prof. Dr. Sandra Noeth (MA SODA)

Bodies – and their artistic articulations - are key to understanding the complex surroundings that we live in today: they unfold their diagnostic capacities by reconstructing and reflecting, de-normalizing and re-appropriating, testing, imagining and speculating on what conditions our living-together in manifold and multi-layered ways​. Small-scale, in the everyday, or at a global level, bodies, here, appear simultaneously as witnesses, documents, and agents as they move across physical and symbolic territories drawn by vectors of power such as nationhood, sovereignty, and normalcy. However, they are ​not approached as transparent windows that provide unmediated access to reality or as the last resort of authenticity and immediacy. Rather, ​they us to rethink corporeality today and underscore the intertwinement between aesthetics, politics, and ethics.In five public events, the SODA lecture series 2019 gathers artists from different fields of engagement: dance and choreography, theatre, visual arts and film. They introduce their artistic practices as specific ways of responding to, of intervening and participating in the worlds that we live in by sensorial, performative, choreographic and symbolic strategies. The lecture series in English is open to all and free of entrance; it will be co-hosted by Sandra Noeth and the second-year SODA students.The integral seminar part is reserved to the students of the MA SODA and will process the practical and theoretical strategies offered by the guests in the lecture series and contextualize them in broader artistic and theoretical debates.

The lecture series starts on April 24th at 6pm with​ Marwa Arsanios. 

The following dates are: 08.05. (Perel), 29.05. (Ian Kaler), 19.06. (Mischa Leinkauf), 10.07. (Caglar Yigitogullari).

The lecture series takes place in english,is free of charge and open for all interested.

The international students come from Iran, Finland, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Germany and the USA and they all bring their own artistic signature and approach.
