Body — Sign — Gender

“Representation”: Between Culture, Body and Perception
Chapter
Part of the Schriftenreihe der Internationalen Frauenuniversität »Technik und Kultur« book series (SIFU, volume 6)

Abstract

During the Bremen study phase “The Body and representation” a trip to “Die Höge” near Bremen, a farm used as a center for women artists, was planned for a week-end. Amongst other things a public discussion on “The Body as main subject of feminist discourse — theoretical impulses and political consequences” was scheduled. The talks of the past days had made clear that most of the participants had proofed themselves to be experts for specific topics related to the field “Body”. We drew the conclusion giving the participants the opportunity to present their own projects.
