POETIC BIOPOLITICS: PRACTICES OF RELATION IN ARCHITECTURE AND THE ARTS. Ed. by Peg Rawes et al. I.B. Tauris & Co. Ltd, London, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Palgrave Macmillan, New York. 326 pp. with 40 ills. 24 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781780769127 In English.
Publisher's description: As the French philosopher and social theorist Michel Foucault defined the concept, 'biopolitics' is the extension of state control over both the physical and political bodies of a population. Poetic Biopolitics is a positive attempt to explain and show how the often destructive effects and affects of biopolitical power structures can be 'poeticised' and deconstructed through the arts and humanities: in architecture, art, literature, modern languages, performance studies, film and philosophy. It is an interdisciplinary response to the contemporary global crisis of community conflict, social and environmental wellbeing. Structured in three parts - biopolitical bodies and imaginaries, voices and bodies, and social and environmental turbulence - this innovative book meshes performative and visual poetics with critical theory and feminist philosophy. It examines the complex expressions of our physical and psychic lives through artefact, body, dialogue, image, installation and word.
