Anne Juren: Studies on Fantasmical Anatomies – Vortrag

Public Lecture

Anne Juren

Anne Juren presents the various forms of representation in her doctoral thesis "Studies on Fantasmical Anatomies".

In this lecture, Anne Juren will expose the different modes of exposition of her doctoral thesis „Studies on Fantasmical Anatomies“, an ongoing transversal and interdisciplinary artistic research. „Studies on Fantasmical Anatomies“ address the body both within the choreographic realm and beyond it, in other fields of knowledge. At the intersection of the therapeutic and the choreographic, the somatic and the poetic, she has developed several body-orientated practices based on Feldenkrais’ speculative use of language, imagination and touch. By drawing on various fields of knowledge – anatomy, psychoanalysis, feminist and queer theories, poetry and somatic practices – the research expands choreography towards disparate discourses, practices and treatments of the body.

Born in France, Anne Juren is a choreographer, artist-researcher and Feldenkrais practitioner. She lives and works in Vienna, where she founded the Wiener Tanz- und Kunstbewegung association in 2003. Juren’s choreographic and artistic works are shown in theatres and museums, at festivals and biennial exhibitions. In her artistic practices, Juren seeks to expand the concept of choreography by exploring the body's sensorial, kinaesthetic and soma poetics. Anne Juren has been a Feldenkrais practitioner since 2013. She completed her PhD at the Stockholm University of the Arts under the supervision of André Lepecki and Sandra Noeth.
