Tables Dancing: Playing with Enchantments of Materiality beyond Representation

Paragrana: Internationale Zeitschrift für Historische Anthropologie 28 (2):83-94 (2019)
  Copy   BIBTEX


This article is written in response to Method Lab #2, reacting to and reading scenes from the theatre and the school classroom. We responded to ‘The table and the dancer’ by Carla J. Maier with drawings by Janna R. Wieland, and ‘The book and the authors reading’ by Elise v. Bernstorff and Carla J. Maier. Our responses are within the ontological turn and specifically posthuman studies and new material feminism. We move beyond representational thinking to explore vibrant matter and experiment with what more the text, scenes and pictures can become.
