Programme »Politics of the Flesh«

»Anorexia and Theocracy. Materials on Catharine of Manresa’s ›Exercises‹« is intended as an unfinished text work on the flesh becoming word. A fictionalization of intertextualities opens up the search for a female ›écriture‹ to the pseudohistorical as a utopian space. In this process, the potential modernity of a Jesuit concept of sensualism is activated by (xeno-) feminist body references. The resulting sensibility is no longer centred on the subject and its collective political context is examined against the aesthetic background of the counter-reformation.
