“Entitled as…” video installation (2004) by Arzu Ozkal Telhan (Turkey)
A naked newborn baby is not considered wrong or bad. A naked two years old on the beach is generally considered normal and innocuous. At what age a child is considered as a human and trained with the set of social practices, disciplinized and socialized ?“Activities such as walking, experiencing shame (experiencing gender), stigmatization, eating, and dressing, are the daily rituals through which the child attends and trains the body. The body is a powerful symbolic form, a surface on which the central rules, hierarchies, and even metaphysical commitments of culture are inscribed (sewed).” Michel Foucault

Entitled as…” video installation (2004) by Arzu Ozkal Telhan (Turkey)

A naked newborn baby is not considered wrong or bad. A naked two years old on the beach is generally considered normal and innocuous. At what age a child is considered as a human and trained with the set of social practices, disciplinized and socialized ?

“Activities such as walking, experiencing shame (experiencing gender), stigmatization, eating, and dressing, are the daily rituals through which the child attends and trains the body. The body is a powerful symbolic form, a surface on which the central rules, hierarchies, and even metaphysical commitments of culture are inscribed (sewed).” Michel Foucault
