In Conversation #2: Social Wounds

The second conversation on the integrities of the body looks at what it means for an individual body, for the body of a collective, to experience and to a carry a wound. Medical anthropologist Omar Dewachi and artist Hakan Topal discuss together with Sandra Noeth: how do bodies become sites for witnessing, representing, thinking about and archiving experiences of physical harm and symbolic attack? How can they also be envisaged as sites for recuperation and realignment with deep transformations in society and politics?
