We are surrounded by body images. We are constantly looking at ourselves and other bodies in the mirror, in our mobile phone cameras and on social media. We are constantly confronted with images of bodies. What does it mean to have a body that is read as female in a patriarchal, capitalist society? Who or what influences it? "Archeology of Body Histories" tells body stories from different female and queer perspectives: voice, sound, text, movement and image interweave to create a participatory performance format on the threshold of performance, workshop and spatial installation, in which you are invited to actively participate in different ways. No special previous knowledge is necessary. All you need is an openness and a wish to participate and listen.
