New media technologies and their relationship with the body

This Body Is in Danger! offers an innovative perspective on corporeality at the intersection with cutting-edge contemporary debates regarding the shift from biopolitics to necropolitics, critical approaches to new media technologies and the relation between performing arts, activism and politics.

The book consists of academic texts by both established and emerging scholars, who bring together perspectives from different fields (philosophy, cultural studies, performance studies, theatre studies and dance studies) and different geopolitical contexts. A special section of the book featuring statements by artists will be dedicated to relevant artistic practices that deal with these topics.
