VIRTUAL BODIES is a weekly series of webinar discussions, presentations, and performances featuring artists and curators, hosted by faculty from the Department of the Arts at Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, The New School. All events are free and open to the public, but require registering.
The body is virtual - a multiplicity that exists not as a fixed and knowable entity, but finds itself containing and attached to many selves, identities, singularities, and ways of knowing itself and its relations to others. Artists and choreographers, in particular, have long explored this virtual potentiality, pressing at the limits of what the body can be and do. But what happens when this sense of the virtual meets with its other connotation - that of being “online”? "Virtual Bodies" presents a weekly series from artists and curators whose practices have long engaged with the politics of the body - providing a space for them to reflect on their work and the way it addresses the limits and possibilities of the virtual today.
