Programme »Politics of the Flesh«

»Kissing, biting, where is the difference? When we truly love it’s easy to do one when we mean the other,« says Penthesilea in Heinrich von Kleist’s play. Symbolic, real and phantasmatic forms of cannibalism are closer to us than we might like, but they seem to be fundamental to the formation of intersubjectivity. The lecture asks how artistic approaches to anthropophagy articulate a special form of this relationship: devouring one’s own body.
