The 2016 biennial edition ‘I/WE/THEY’ expands from the physical to the social body and explores the cultural borders of a networked world. Modern Body Festival is particularly interested in the effects of architecture, technology and digital communication, as they are fundamentally transforming the way we exist as a society, culture, species. Where do the limits of the self extend and where do the social bodies of group and community begin? How do we understand and position ourselves as individuals, while still feeling a sense of belonging and connection to an expanding global community? How do we exist, identify, and interact?
The Modern Body Festival welcomes works that seek the ‘modern body’ within the new worlds that emerge when different art forms intersect, collide, and modulate each other. Open to any discipline and format.
The deadline to submit is July 25, 2016.
