The exhibition ‘Embodiments’ takes inspiration from recent debates about embodied cognition: the idea that thinking and perceiving depend on bodily interactions with the world. Here we transcend the standard exhibition format by bringing theoretical talks and psychological studies into the exhibition space. Exhibited will be sculptures, drawings, performances, and multimedia artworks which challenge the idea of embodiment and the body itself by dissecting, rearranging, distorting bodies or body parts and by redefining the body. The show brings together art, philosophy, and cognitive science. It features 8 international artists, whose works explore the body and a day-long workshop with presentations by scholars who study philosophy, psychology, and history of art. In addition, there will be opportunities for visitors to participate in psychological studies that measure aesthetic experiences while viewing the art on display.
