The show examines how artists express and challenge the notion of the body as politics, with a specific focus on Queer bodies and their identity formation, the Black and Brown body, bodies in religious cults, as well as body modification as a way of self-identification. The body can also be seen as a protective shell and a cyborg—a combination of human and machine. Two different approaches are used to highlight these themes: the method, which might be simply described as showing 'presence through absence,' presented in this exhibition, is an active dialogue with the 'exposed body.'
