Performing Ideology: Communitas and Immunitas

In this article I would like to attend to the issue of the performance of ideology, through observing mass protests organized recently throughout the neoliberal world rather than contemporary (performing) arts. I find these protests that gathered the precarious and outraged—from Spain and Greece, over the US, to the UK, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Turkey, Portugal, etc.,—a challenging point of departure, exactly since they have often been criticized for lacking ideological and political programs, while at the same time, with their specific modes of operation—wherein citizens are physically, bodily invested—they bring to the public focus the corporeality, which might be the main ideological locus in today’s neoliberal capitalist society in general.
