The recently founded MA Studies in "Choreography and Performance“ and the Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture at Justus-Liebig-University Giessen held two cooperating conferences with similar subjects but different foci. The international symposium „ „Communications: Dance, Politics and Co-Immunity“ “, organized by the MA program in „Choreography and Performance“, asks to what extent dance, in its history as well as its contemporary development, is linked to concepts of the political. The conference „„thinking - resisting - reading the political““, organized by the Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture, asked what specific perspectives and methodological consequences arise for the study of culture that are informed by recent deliberations on the relationship of the political and the aesthetic.
