Michel Foucault and the Body: Questioning the Paradoxes of Juridical and Political Inscriptions: University of Warwick Institute of Advanced Study, September 16-17, 2022 @warwickuni

Please see below for information about a program on September16-17, 2022 to be held at the University of Warwick Institute of Advanced Studies.



Meeting the Belgian artist Wim Delvoye in Ghent, Belgium (video below): to raise interest in the topic and to offer a new approach to academic conferences, we have met with the Belgian artist Wim Delvoye, who has become famous for his artwork ‘Tim’: Wim tattoed the back of Tim Steiner, an acquaintance Wim made some years back in an art gallery, and set up a sales contract to sell Tim’s tattoo after his death. It has been agreed, indeed, that Tim Steiner’s back will be removed and preserved. Turning this tattoo into a living work of art, it raises all kinds of questions – legal, cultural, political, ethical and philosophical – that we are looking forward to discussing with you as part of this lecture series. https://wimdelvoye.be/Link opens in a new window
