Shorts: Resistant Bodies
Taking as inspiration some of the themes central to Hammer's work, this programme further unpacks these ideas to present a striking panorama of contemporary artists, unified by a similarly radical spirit of playful subversion and aesthetic experimentation. With a focus on the politics of the body, physicality is explored and celebrated through the lenses of performance, space, sensuality and visibility.
