2019 Symposium Schedule

The Contemporary Body Reconfigured

A Multicultural Perspective

The 15th Brakhage Center symposium will focus on representations of the contemporary body within the shifting codes of gender and sexuality.  It will feature moving image artists who use experimental media to focus on how bodies and roles change with history, and how norms are in constant flux. There will be screenings and  presentations on March 9 by Nazli Dincel, Laida Lertxundi and Cauleen Smith, followed by two film programs on March 10 devoted to Arab experimental cinema--work by women from the Middle East, Gulf, North Africa and diaspora--curated by Rachael Rakes.
