Erin Manning on Artfullness

Thanks for the synthetic_zero blog for posting this talk by my former Ph.D. advisor, colleague, and friend Erin Manning.

“Erin Manning turns to a language whose affective force she sees as depending on the concept of thought in motion to challenge the standard notion of movement as spatial displacement. Through a variety of examples, Erin Manning describes choreographic practices that do not simply stabilize the moving body into patterns of displacement, but rather work to develop with that body. In this way, Erin Manning offers new ways of thinking the relationship between the body and politics today, confronting us with the fact that bodies do politics in more ways than we normally think.”
