Le corps au travail de son émancipation. Gestes politiques et processus artistiques à partir du projet Autour de la table

Abstract : Trespassing the opposition between " emancipation " and " work " in which the body at work would be considered as an alienated one, this text proposes a way to read emancipation as something peculiar to this body that works itself, in a logic always specific. What kind of gestures, of time and space organisation does it have to invent in order to accomplish its task? Which special knowledge is he producing not out of production but in its middle? How does it let resonate the statement of Spinoza "one doesn't know what a body can", proving its persistence at the level where it is supposed to be dominated and expressing, thanks to this internal complication of power games rather than a mere power reversal, the political strength of this acting body? Instead of researching it in the "sublime" body of the ballerina, the collective and international project Around the table finds it in these bodies at work that inhabit and practice our cities, singularly as well as collectively. The project offers a stage of visibility and narratives that gives to each of these bodies a chance to reencounter, in its task (munus, muneris) expressed and shared with (cum) others, what is still able, inside a society atomised by capitalism, to create a commom (cum-munus).
