From the eye-body to the embodied-eye. The use of images in performance-research strategies.

Abstract in spanish

This article discusses the use of images in socio-anthropological research and their contribution to the development of performance-research methodological strategies. By bringing three research-creation collaborative experiences developed in different violent and/or traumatic socio-political contexts in Argentina (a video workshop conducted with indigenous toba-qom teachers, a video-dance in the ruins of Villa Epecuén and a performatic installation about the feminist movement NiUnaMenos) it reflects on different relationships between performance-camera-corporalities and explores the poetic-epistemological-political potential of the images to (re)present sensitive corporalities. In dialogue with other embodied research methods, the analysis suggests how the use of images in a cross-disciplinary approach can contribute to the development of participatory-collaborative strategies and enable a space for decolonizing our gaze(s) and micropolitical transformation.
