Czym jest ciało w body art?

What (Who) Is the Body in Body Art?

Currently we deal with so many meanings of ‘body art’ that it is practically impossible to explicitly define what kind of art it is. Just like to unify so many different ways of conceiving what or — even better — who the body is in such kind of art. Is it an instrument, a medium, a subject or a work of art? Trying get the answer to this question I explore the essential functions of a body in art from three perspectives: firstly the cognitive one (including autoreflexive abilities of bodily experience), secondly from the perspective of positively understood limited nature of a human body, and finally I take into consideration a mediatory status of corporeality. In my reflections I base on Jean-François Lyotard’s and John D. Caputo’s philosophical investigations in a general nature of human experience and sensibility.
