Marie Sanida, "Body MARvellous"

The divided self has lost sense of her body as links to the world are disrupted. «The living being outgrows the vertigo of annihilation only in the ecstasy of procreation» concludes Benjamin in his «One-Way Street», 1928. The New can only be born when the veil of the phantasmagoria created by the commercialised world dissolves. The talk is an approach to dialectical images, to the notion of Enantiodromia, to Eros and his political dimension within the works of art.

Marie Sanida teaches and learns from children since 2002. She studied English Literature and arts in Athens and the University of London, specialising in the period 1890-1940. She curated [E]SC[H]ATOLOGY in Napoli in 2010. She is currently researching Walter Pater and Nietzsche.
