Peter Weibel: Körperaktionen Bodyworks 1967- 2003

Peter Weibel



Peter Weibels performances differentiate themselves from other actions performed in the 196os, for instance in Vienna and California, firstly, through their relation to media and secondly, through their relation to politics. His body politics is body critique that is simultaneously a critique of traditional forms of representation as well as identity politics. Unlike classical body artists Weibel did not only search for the emancipation of the body, for instance through the sexual revolution but liberation from the body in the age of its constructability via media and gene technology.
