“Human action depends upon all sorts of supports - it is always supported action.” Judith Butler

The struggles over what is public space, over how bodies will be supported, over what it means to have the right to have rights are fundamental ones. Contemporary politics regarding the ‘square’ and the ‘street’ have led to surprising alliances, ones that are self-organizing, self-instituting, feminist strategies, and critical artistic and curatorial practices. Affective and communicative labor produce new radical relationalities between self and other. At the same time, the vulnerability, fragility, and precarity of bodies and their right to support becomes apparent. The symposium “Vulnerability and Resistance. The Public Dis/Appearance of Bodies” addresses these complexly intertwined issues and aims to foster trans-local and post-disciplinary exchange and debate.
