TOUCH AND PROPRIOCEPTION

15.9.

University of Art and Design, School of Art and Media Pori, 18.00

The interdisciplinary research project “Figures of Touch” addresses the relations between the arts, body and society by analysing the transformation of the cultural status of touching. The project deploys epistemic interests of media studies, art research, aesthetics, philosophy, and medical anthropology.

The session “Touch and proprioception” organized by the project focuses on questions concerning the role of touching in regard to the sense of body posture and movement (proprioception). This theme is approached in form of an introductory lecture “The Senses of Touch” given by artist-researcher Mika Elo (Taik/Pori) and a demonstration of Feldenkrais movement analysis method. The demonstration is conceived and led by Sibylla Klein (Feldenkrais-practitioner, Helsinki/Bremen).
