I named my project “Foundation for Schizoanalysis”, and here is the blog in which I give some information about schizoanalysis, a term coined by Deleuze and Guattari, as well as posting announcements about the next sessions of discussions.
My first session, which was the discussion of the question in 900’s, why did Caucasian Women started to remove their body hair after Crusaders return from the Middle East? at the Cindy Sherman Exhbition at MoMA, went really well; the participants reacted in two different ways. Some were really confused, whereas some thought this was an important process for them. I am planning to do the next session at Re-Embody Mine Exhibition this Friday, April 27 at 8:00 pm on the 7th floor of 66 West 12th street. Check out my blog for more info.
Also, here are some drawings and words one of the participants made after the first session. That being said, I would love to hear your ideas on how to document this process, since I find it difficult to design this part of the project. I feel this is crucial, if I want the project to be affective for more people, not just the actual participants, and also to give the project its autonomy from its performative nature.
