About this exposition

The research project Body and the Other aims at outlining corporeal strangeness, focusing particularly on the uncanny (das Unheimliche), as phenomena and as experience. It is studied through the perspective of the pathic with the investigation directed towards the effects of the unexpected, i.e. strange, and leading thus towards the borders of perception. It also illustrates the ethics and the aesthetics of experiencing strangeness. Three questions are investigated: what kind of corporeal experience is resulted by strangeness, what kind of understanding of the intercorporeality is thus created, and how art can function as the paradigm for experiencing the uncanny. The questions are studied in a collaborative process of artistic research and three artistic productions. The intention of the research project is to bring the concept of uncanny forth to the borderlines of scientific and artistic research, and art.
