Body in the Net

Installation view, Karin Hansson and Nils Claesson 2007.

The new communication technology is often associated with immateriality. We believe the contrary that the body is central to our remedierade reality. What has real significance for our reading of the information is our bodies’ position on the map of class, ethnicity, sexuality and gender. The Art project The body in the Net began in 2003 in the debate on the sexualization of the media. The ambition was to use art as a platform to investigate this and issues of information dissemination, economics and physicality. The project was developed through seminars, workshops and an exhibition at ID:Gallery in Stockholm October 2007.
