Publication “Bodies of Evidence“, edited by Gurur Ertem and Sandra Noeth

The 280-page tome focuses on the body as witness, document and actor: It is a testament to the movement between and across boundaries that are drawn by power vectors such as nation states, sovereignty and normativity. The book collects more than 20 voices form the arts, politics and civil society. In essays, interviews, dialogues and case studies, the contributions deal with the question how bodies are entwined in current “crises” and which ethical political questions may thus arise. So, “Bodies of Evidence” enables new perspectives on physicalness, a category rarely scrutinised in this context. The anthology, commissioned by tanzhaus nrw, was published by Viennese publishing house Passagen Verlag during the 2018 Leipzig Book Fair.
