Translating Vitalities Workshop

25th-27th June, 2020 (online)

Hosted by Max Plank Institute, Berlin

Translating Vitalities is a shifting and changing international collective of artists, anthropologists, medical and healing practitioners, historians, and other humanists and non-humanists who regularly come together in the service of making collaborative work to understand lifeworlds and their translations and transformations. We have been meeting more or less annually since 2014. This year we were due to meet at the Max Plank Institute in Berlin. Due to Covid19 the in-person meeting was cancelled, but several of us met on Zoom instead to share ideas, and participate in smaller group workshops and experiments on the subject of breathing and the breath.

My contribution is a photo-text work that creatively explores the experiences of a donor family and a recipient and family. 

I am honoured that the first chapter of my book, Monstrosity: The Human Monster in Visual Culture has been published in this amazing collection

Chapter in a new book, The Monster Theory Reader

published 15th January, 2020 

As long as there have been monsters, there have been attempts to make sense of them, to explain where they come from and what they mean. This book collects the best of what contemporary scholars have to say on the subject, in the process creating a map of the monstrous across the vast and complex terrain of the human psyche.

 

Including the most interesting and important proponents of monster theory and its progenitors, from Sigmund Freud to Julia Kristeva to J. Halberstam, Donna Haraway, Barbara Creed, and Stephen T. Asma...
