We are continuing the “architectures of gender” seminar series, focusing on the issue of technologies and denaturalizations in relation to the (un)building of bodies this spring semester (2019).
The body as ontology, epistemology, and representation has long provided a model for architecture. Architecture, in turn, has contributed to the construction of the human body, especially in the modern era – for example, through techniques of measuring, norms and standards. How does this relationship change today, as the boundaries between human body and technology increasingly blur, and the presumed integrity of the body becomes subject to debate and alteration?
