On behalf of Klaudiusz Ślusarczyk and NeMA MA students,
the MA New Media Arts department would like to invite you to a lecture as part of a set of meetings on AGGRESSION.
Taking on ideas connected to aggressive behaviour in the public sphere both in the offline and online universe, the theme for this set of meetings is also connected to this year’s activities organised nationwide by a coalition of public institutions, non-governmental organizations, social movements, collectives, artists and activists as part of the Antifascist year initiative.
Our next meeting will be on:

Butoh is a contemporary dance form originated from Japan in the late 1950s. Revolutionary and breaking principles of the dance genre, butoh created new modes of artistic expression. Butoh dancers focused on the deep body work leading towards the redefinition of the body on stage. In this process body became art. Nowadays in Europe, butoh is still surprising the spectators with its unique style, consequently strengthening its impact and position on the contemporary art scene.
