/ Doctoral Dissertation;
Subjectivity and Performance Art*, 2013
The dissertation is devoted to the concept of the embodiment of the subject in philosophy and culture. It is focused on three major areas. Firstly, it analyses performance which is understood as a specific form of art characterized by authenticity, scandal, and subversion. Secondly, the work is focused on the area of corporality, and the third area concentrates on subjectivity. Performance art is, therefore, a pretext for asking about the subject and its involvement within various cultural and social discourses, and it shows something that might be described as an embodied subject. The embodiment understood in an existential or a subjective way questions the stable “I” and enables to look at what is different or other. Performance works as a kind of mirror; it reveals hidden discourses and forms of oppression. *The exact title: The Embodiment of the Subject: Philosophy and Performance within the Context of the Contemporary Cultural Criticism
