Amsterdam-based Kosovar artist Astrit Ismaili’s performance lecture extends their practice, which relies on the body and presence, into the digital space. Ismaili’s work centers on how bodies are constructed, modified, and interpreted through contemporary society, but also how they are heard, asking what it means to sonify a body politic. Exploring the politics of the body and voice, they aim to disrupt prevailing narratives around representation, imagining new and radical ways of thinking on how bodies inhabit and occupy space. Their work proposes bodies that consist of both imaginary and material realities, using alter egos, body extensions and wearable musical instruments to embody different possibilities for becoming and transformation.
