Event Details

Bodily Boundaries

From the perspective of devoted body art practitioners, a discussion intended to question current assumptions about the skin boundary. Beginning in the ether of concepts pertaining to what we mean when we talk about individuals, from “pre-modern” cosmologies to modern societies. We will open a discussion about a paradigmatic shift ushered in by current events and offer some practical considerations for how to take care of our communal “selves”.

This is the the first in a series of presentations which are all based on Body Ritual.

In the months following this introductory lecture, workshops will be offered that will delve deeper into the topics in which the community is most interested.
