CORPUS - The Bodily Turn: Gesture, Gender and Sensation of the Art

This interdisciplinary cross-media network investigates the perspectives in the theory of aesthetics and the analysis of art works.

The intention is to contribute to the development and the critical discussion of a constantly growing number of international and Nordic research reports within those branches of the aesthetics and the analysis of art works, that are dealing with the role of the body in the artistic production of meaning.

The network wants to contribute scientifically innovative approaches to the body problem, including an investigation of the ethical and political perspectives in dealing with the aesthetic potential of the body.
