New York Times and Time Out New York Critics' Pick


In any society, the image of the body is built with its own ideology. What marks are left by political history on the body? Rachid Ouramdane performs a duet with multi-instrumentalist Jean-Baptiste Julien, delving into notions of nationhood and identity by examining the relationship between the body and power.

This event is part of Endurance/Resistance/Inspiration,
one of Crossing the Line 2011's three curatorial program perspectives.
