This Is My Body, My Body Is Your Body, My Body Is The Body of the Word

 - This Is My Body, My Body Is Your Body, My Body Is The Body of the Word
This publication offers a feminist and queer interpretation of artistic practices of the last forty years. It gathers a selection of works and texts from the late 1960s to the present, newly commissioned essays and an anthology of artists's texts.
How might we talk differently today about the negotiation between bodies and languages? This publication offers a selection of works and texts from the late 1960s to the present in which bodies and words escape from identity-based determination and thus become the modus operandi of new narrative and poetic mechanism. Richly illustrated, the book includes newly commissioned essays by Quinn Latimer, Émilie Notéris, and Lilou Vidal, and an anthology of artists's texts: poems, hypertexts, scripts, notes, song lyrics, quotes, or extracts from pluri-linguistic thoughts.
Supporting curatorial practices which aim at encompassing social and political change, Paraguay is happy to publish a second book with curator Lilou Vidal.
With works by Simon Asencio, Gianfranco Baruchello, Tomaso Binga, Irma Blank, Pauline Boudry & Renate Lorenz, Ernesto de Sousa, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Karl Holmqvist, Derek Jarman, Ketty La Rocca, Hanne Lippard, Mélanie Matranga, Rory Pilgrim, Michele Rizzo.
