Kroppen i det offentliga rummet En studie av performanceverken Twilight Walk och Göteborg Crawl
This essay aims to analyse the social and physical interaction through the body in public space, based on the performances Twilight Walk by The New Beauty Council, and Crawl, by William Pope.L. As part of the performance-programme City Excavations from Gothenburg International Biennial of Contemporary Art 2011, artists occupied the streets of Gothenburg for a few days in June 2011. Through an interpretation on performativity and feminism architecture-theory this essay looks into how bodies integrate with public space; on how space potentially includes or excludes representations of different bodies and the construction of (gender) identities. I want to discuss how bodily performances such as movements, gestures, visual and emotional expressions interact with architecture and social contexts.
