Abstract

This edition of Inter art actuel invites contributions specifically addressing “alternatively abled” arts (performance, art installations, poetry, maneuvers, digital art, etc.) and the artistic, political, cultural and societal challenges they present.

Argument

Mad art, cripping the art, disability art, deaf art, outsider art, site-specific art, inclusive art: people with diverse capacities (physical, intellectual, cognitive, mental, sensory, learning, and diversities in language and means of communication) have so many ways to observe, think, and create.

In contrast to approaches centered on handicap situations created by ableist or audist spaces and institutions, this edition aims to highlight creation situations where people with different abilities – alternatively abled people – examine the connections between art and bodies, spaces, time (crip time), mobility and sensoriality in new ways.

By taking an interest in the sensory, motor, and cognitive processes of these artists who self-identify as having alternative abilities, or being deaf or crazy, we can observe how these emergent and current practices reshape the conditions and contours of creation, and how they accompany or start new conversations on creative processes, their accessibility, their cultural equity, and their affirmative and emancipatory potential.

From the first explorations of sensory substitution (Paul Bach-y-Rita, in 1969) up to the current research into creation stemming from prostheses and exploring transesthesia, it is not only a matter of developing accessibility in society but also rethinking bodies, shapes and norms. This edition of Inter art actuel invites contributions specifically addressing “alternatively abled” arts (performance, art installations, poetry, maneuvers, digital art, etc.) and the artistic, political, cultural and societal challenges they present.
