Everyday performances: functional and dysfunctional body/space/dress compositions
Bigolin, Ricarda and Thornquist, Clemens 2013, 2014, 2015
The intention of the workshop is to investigate how both conditions and functions of space and dress can be affected/altered and performative. The first necessity is to understand the simple spatial conditions of a space – what are the functions it has and how does it engage the body in these functions? Secondly how do particular dress genres behave or make the body behave in these spaces? Thirdly, what happens when these dress genres are abstracted/altered/confused in these spaces and how does the body perform?
