From the Swedish Folk Home to the New-town, Corbusier to the Metabolism movement to Celebration Village; from Radio Calisthenics to the Greek gymnasium to the Nazi’s ideal man - the body and the home have historically been used as sites for the manifestation of political ideology, the collective and social change. How are our bodies collective sites of contest and creation to propagandise or empower the political systems we are within? Who designs the buildings we inhabit or the political paths we move along? Is the body directed by the houses and the system it works within or does it mold, shape, strengthen or destroy? ‘Construction of a New Body’ seeks to explore contemporary modes of living, our collective movement and the question of who builds utopia and how do we live there when it is done?


‘Construction of a New Body’ is a three-day, mini art-festival based at the Auditorium, Stakkevollan, Tromsø.
