I miss my body

Hofkirche Innsbruck & Tirol
autumn 2019

Can you miss your body? In the cultural technique of Selfies, Emperor Maximilian’s desire to decouple his image from the presence of his body and to spread it on a massive scale has been fulfilled for all of us. But how does the fulfillment of this old wish leave us behind?

Esther Strauß creates the title of her performance from 60 centimeter high mirror letters and carries it through Tyrol together with a group of performers. As a performative expedition, I miss my body playfully tells the story of the medialization of the body and asks about the relationship of the body to its pictures.
