For The New Body, Ismaili designed a wearable musical instrument that challenges the biological body’s physical and mental capacities by adding to and changing natural (given) traits. The New Body underlines their ongoing engagement into body and gender politics, and their exploration of the human voice in relation to physical movement.
The performance starts at 7 pm sharp, but you can join us for a glass of Gluhwein in front of our space from 6.30 pm. In the week following the performance, a ghostly hologram of The New Body will inhabit Kunstverein (on view during regular opening hours until December 15).
Kunstverein wishes to thank our (Gold)members, Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst (AFK) and Ammodo. This performance has been made possible with the help of Mondriaan Fonds, LambdaLambdaLambda, Digital Spring, Salts, and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
