Day 3: body technologies

Day 3: body technologies
Day 3: body technologies


On the third and final day of the Pharmakon performative conference:
Shamanic, tantric, cannibalistic and other body technologies break open the fields of what can be thought and experienced, and how knowledge can travel from the one to the other. A world appears in the connections and disconnections between bodies and their environments, through the practised virtualization of what it is the body can do. On the other hand the self-understanding of the body is morphed through the transindividuation of digitalized memories and re-image-inations that transform our potential engagements and understandings.
