“Normal” and “Abnormal” body.
The body imprint in the subway of Athens and the fairytale of E. Trivizas.
What we aim to investigate in this study is how the characteristics that describe our body are capable of composing a typology that classify the body as normal and abnormal in a specific cultural context that eagerly seeks for the right and the normal. Moreover, we research how the body relates with the production of the contemporary urban space. We observe the movement of the “normal” body and the “abnormal body” through the paradigm of the subway of Athens and the imaginary site in E.Trivizas’ fairytale “The last black cat”.
