Anthropology of the Body and Performance team of the Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA), coordinated by Silvia Citro.
This theoretical and practical activity focuses on the common elements between performance arts, political activism and socio-anthropological reflectivity, seeking to expand the poetic-political-epistemological potential of the bodies. Based on documentary records (photographic and audiovisual) of performances that took place in the context of the #NiUnaMenos demonstration, different methodological strategies are presented to be explored from a performance perspective, showing its connection with gender violence experiences in the Anthropology of the Body and Performance team, as well as biopolitical social differentiation regimesand the creative possibility of dispute.
The Equipo de Antropología del Cuerpo y la Performance was created in 2004. It is made up of teachers and researchers with a background in anthropology and the arts, especially from the General Theory of Movement Department at the Facultad de Filosofía y Letras of the Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA).
