Drifts into the Unknown
A performative research into the urban body
With about 70% of the world population expected to live in urban environments by 2050, the city is about to become one of the most significant spaces to shape personal identity. This module investigates the dynamic relationship between the city and the human body, how they impact each other and the shaping of personal identity. Taking Berlin itself as a point of departure, the module invites participants to create performances, which are inspired by drifts through the different environments and shifting identities of the urban body. Gathering impressions through a more somatic and subconscious approach to the city allows for an investigation into the relationship between outer and inner constructions, the creation of identity and the emergence of performances around the urban body.
