Politics of touch sense, movement, sovereignty by Erin Manning ( )
16 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Political philosophy has long been bound by traditional thinking about the body. Through an engagement with the state-centered vocabulary of this discipline, Politics of Touch examines the ways in which bodies continually run up against existing political structures. In this groundbreaking work, Erin Manning reconsiders how politics attempts to paralyze the body through the idea of the national body politic. In Politics of Touch, Manning develops a new way to conceive the role of the senses, and of touch in particular. Exploring concepts of violence, gender, sexuality, security, democracy, and identity, she traces the ways in which touch informs the body. In an original and expansive analysis of tango - a tactile, rhythmic, and improvisational dance - Manning asserts the necessity of considering the sensing body in motion in order to think about its political implications. With a fresh vision and an original theoretical basis, Manning shows the body as its own ontological category, and in doing so redefines our understanding of the sense of touch in philosophical and political terms

Thought in the act : passages in the ecology of experience by Erin Manning ( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
" "Every practice is a mode of thought, already in the act. To dance: a thinking in movement. To paint: a thinking through color. To perceive in the everyday: a thinking of the world's varied ways of affording itself." --from Thought in the Act Combining philosophy and aesthetics, Thought in the Act is a unique exploration of creative practice as a form of thinking. Challenging the common opposition between the conceptual and the aesthetic, Erin Manning and Brian Massumi "think through" a wide range of creative practices in the process of their making, revealing how thinking and artfulness are intimately, creatively, and inseparably intertwined. They rediscover this intertwining at the heart of everyday perception and investigate its potential for new forms of activism at the crossroads of politics and art.Emerging from active collaborations, the book analyzes the experiential work of the architects and conceptual artists Arakawa and Gins, the improvisational choreographic techniques of William Forsythe, the recent painting practice of Bracha Ettinger, as well as autistic writers' self-descriptions of their perceptual world and the experimental event making of the SenseLab collective. Drawing from the idiosyncratic vocabularies of each creative practice, and building on the vocabulary of process philosophy, the book reactivates rather than merely describes the artistic processes it examines. The result is a thinking-with and a writing-in-collaboration-with these processes and a demonstration of how philosophy co-composes with the act in the making. Thought in the Act goes beyond proposing to enact a collaborative mode of thinking in the act at the intersection of art, philosophy, and politics. "--
