Judith Butler’s Notes Toward a Performative Theory of Assembly (2016) directly addresses the themes and practice of Mette Ingvartsen, Tino Sehgal and Boris Charmatz’s work – the body in public space. Butler’s book was published against the background of the Occupy Movement, the Arab Spring, the Euromaidan and other progressive movements, and makes the argument that the body’s actions and gestures have an inherently political significance, one that can only be manifested through the physical presence of those participating in assemblies. In this context, Judith Butler’s lecture at Volksbühne considers the space and time of non-violent resistance in light of new forms of authoritarianism, focusing on forms of solidarity that formed under construction constraint. Indefinite detention, new forms of carceral politics, and the disinhibition of fascist expression have prompted new alliances of bodily expression, reconfiguring the space-time of the everyday.
