the importance of being paul b preciado

paul b. preciado (1970) is a writer, philosopher, and curator renowned for his exploration of applied and theoretical subjects encompassing identity, gender, pornography, architecture, and sexuality.
in this expansive project, comprising three performances, a book, and an open debate, bonneville drew inspiration from preciado’s concept of “body-essay”, building upon research conducted in previous works, where body, performance, and writing were intricately interwoven with philosophical inquiry. this thematic progression stemmed from encounters with key feminist principles, notably the axiom “the personal is political,” and engagements with philosophers who embrace a first-person perspective in their practice.
