Discourses on the body

Swen Seebach — In today’s Seminar “Discourses on the body”, I’ve explained that drawing on the ideas of Butler, Foucault and Baudrillard I suggest that the mentioned changes in the forms of communication are part of bigger structural changes (a new cycle of the production and consumption of reality and social life). The discourse on the body (and matter in general) has changed. These developments have effects on the perceptions of all people in society and therefore on the webbing of love relationships, as well as on the understanding of the self and the other and of the bodies in love relationships.  

Visual and audio focussed presentation of the loved, of love and of the body lets other forms of experiencing each other disappear. It puts another complexion on the body, its ways to communicate, to live, feel and love. We consume the body through love and we consume us through the consumption of the body.
