This thought-provoking volume presents an theoretical reflection on the use of the body in art. It analyses the ways in which the body has always been manipulated; from its relationship with cultural, religious and political institutions to self-mutation. The book is divided into 3 sections – From Beato Angelico to the present day, via some of the most sensational works of Western art. Here, the body represented is a ‘special body’ bearing a considerable number of signs – a sort of iconography of pain. This section also analyses the tension in works created in a state of imprisonment and in meaningful contemporary performances on the subject of hardship. – From Munch to contemporary society, the second part of the book explores significant experiences in forms of control that have changed over the years – from scars left on the bodies of prisoners, of madmen, of the different (tattoos, scarification, radical haircuts and electroshock therapies) right up to the video-cameras installed in all places of transit and the mapping of individual data.
