A conversation with 2023 Mimesis artists.

The body-with-camera, or the documenting body, is a resisting body, an often-targeted body, because of its extended capacity to witness. It is also a social body — its configuration becomes an exponentially extended nexus for connections with other bodies. When we say ‘the personal is political’ we risk eliding Carolyn Forché’s third realm — the realm of witness. Rather than simply pass through this realm, we use this opportunity to live in it, in all of its complexities and contradictions. This conversation explores how the inherent positionality of the documenting body as witness produces intersubjectivity grounded in shared experience.
