Shrinking Studies - A Cultural History - a lecture by Emily Beber
Shrinking Studies - A Cultural History considers the paradoxical process of shrinking as it has appeared throughout history as an action, attack, metaphor, subjective sensation and ontological anxiety. It explores a vast body of shrinkages from miniaturised performances of discipline and power, to a contemporary dissolve of perspective - groundlessness, to fourteenth century saints and mystics body horror in their search for nothingness, to the panoptic presence, the all-seeing, unseen space of the internet.
Emily Beber (b.1988) is a writer and art critic recently graduated from an MA in Critical Writing in Art and Design at the Royal College of Art. Emily is currently working on the book Corpora Limbo, a publication of thirty commissioned essays concerned with the writer's body, to be released by Eros Press in 2015. She also performs as part of the art band WE with Pil and Galia Kollectiv and Victor M.Jakeman, and is the founder of These Lists, an online archive of reading lists and co-founder of the feminist zine WET KNICKERS.
