Viscous Environments. Valeska Gert Guest Professorship Mette Ingvartsen


Danish choreographer and dancer Mette Ingvartsen is the Valeska Gert Guest Professor for the summer semester 2017. “Together with the students I would like to think about how to create a durational environment of bodies and non-human performers interacting with one another. This desire comes from trying to unite two strands of research I have been doing over the last years: On one hand how to make objects, matters and materials agents of performative expression and on the other hand, how to understand sexuality as a social and political issue rather than a private concern.”
