Open Call Body Mapping Lab #3

I am really happy to announce that the Open Call for Participation for the upcoming Body Mapping Lab is NOW OPEN! This year the focus lies on the exploration of the following topic areas: 

>> Performative Ethnography: we will learn about the Teufelsberg's unique history by examining the notion of legacy and by applying the ethnographic means. How can we observe, trace and collect the actions and habits of those who not only visit this popular touristic site, but also, partially, inhabit it? 

>> Environmental Performance: we will discover the rich biodiversity of the Grunewald forest by embodying its living and non-living entities. What can we learn from the behaviour- and movement patterns of certain species and apply it to our own performance practices?  

>> Affective Performance: we will look at the inter-relationship between the body and space through a perspective of the matter of affect. How can a body connect to a space by translating the external conditions, inner states of being, or the presence of the other into a performative language?
