Beschreibung
In the arts based research Performing Surgery (2015-2018) we – Barbara Graf, Christina Lammer, and Doris Stelzer – investigate gestures of surgeons. For this we work with anachronistic methods, for instance, with analog filmmaking. In our presentation we will share and discuss selected video and film scenes of operations. We are particularly interested in the aesthetic aspects of surgery. How do surgeons connect themselves with the bodies of their patients while operating on them? We suggest an approach that brings together art and surgery as parallel stories. In the recordings of surgeons’ hands performing intricate manoeuvres during operations we address humane dimensions of surgery. Thus we regard the medical ‘operating theater’ as a site of empathy, tenderness, intimacy and sensibility where the harmonious orchestration of hands generates the focus of attention. (Christina Lammer)
