Created in 2011, the Body and Art Laboratory is a space that deals with the body and its practices from the perspective of the humanities and art. Techniques, creative processes, modes of production, discourses, images and pedagogies that shape the poetics and policies of the body in contemporary cultural production are privileged subjects of study. It is formed by academic artists who dialogue circulate in the fields of philosophy, anthropology, history, psychology, education, and health sciences in order to understand the different epistemological discourses about the body and its modes of invention. The group’s artistic creation experiences are focused on the arts of presence, with emphasis on dance, performance, circus, and clown.
