Event Details

Royal Anthropological InstituteThe Royal Anthropological Institute presents:

 BODIES IN MOTION

 A series of evening events and exhibitions that explores the relationship  between human movement, space and expression

The way in which we move our bodies can express our multiple identities as well as our social and cultural backgrounds. Whether dancing, walking or playing sports, movement can be an affirmation of society’s norms, a celebration of community cohesion and a vehicle for expressing national and international affiliations.Equally, human movement can be a means of resistance demonstrating social and political unrest or an avenue for innovation and cultural change.

Using photography, ethnographic film, art and presentations, Bodies in Motion aims to engage the public in exploring the meaning of human movement in urban, digital and natural landscapes.

 

Tonight's event: Wednesday 18th April 

 

Bodies in Motion: Skateboarding Speeding Bodies and the City: From Skateboarding to Car Driving

This presentation explores some of the various ways in which bodies in motion – from skateboarding to walking to automobile driving –produce different experiences of cities and landscapes. Photographs, film clips and music are used to explore the transitory nature of our mobile interaction of the world around us, while also introducing themes of urban politics, bodily senses and mobile aesthetics.

 Presentation and Q&A with Dr. Iain Borden
