The body in question(s) was produced in conjunction with a creative research project that brought together contemporary dance, visual art, and academic research to produce an innovative exhibition/performance exploring contemporary perspectives of the body. The publication contains 12 essays in both English and French, discussing the creative and collaborative process that went into the development of dance and visual art pieces for the exhibition/performance. The contributors explore a wide range of topics related to how historic and contemporary perceptions of the body have been shaped by technology, biomedical research, and changing political and social factors.
