The lecture looks at the body as material, medium and technology for remembering, imagining, labouring, transforming and informing socio-economic landscapes. It also references the artist’s own performative practice in relation to situated, embodied histories, the intermingling of the local and the global, art both as possibility for insight and mass industry and ways to complicate its future.
