In the history of contemporary art, the body has been a particular medium in the sense that it implies a physical engagement of the artist who is not necessarily present with other media: it isn't just action painting and the rise of Abstract Expressionism in the United States in the 50s that made us realize that the painter paints (also) with his body. With Gutai in Japan, the Vienna actionists, Fluxus and body art - or corporal art, and many other artists out of any movement, the body becomes all or part of the artistic language.

This performative body, filmed under various schemes - of the acquisition to the intimate theater,, we will give an overview of creation in the field of performance,  territory of the art or History, sexuality and gender are examined.
