Eisa Jocson exposes body politics in the service and entertainment industry as seen through the socioeconomic lens of the Philippines. She studies how the body moves and what conditions make it move – be it social mobility or movement out of Philippines through migrant work. In all her creations – from pole to macho dancing and hostess to Disney princess to Superwoman to Zoo animals — capital is the driving force of movement pushing the indentured body into spatial geographies. Eisa Jocson plays at Meteor 2023 with Filipino Superwoman Band.
Plattform is Bergen Kunsthall’s series of lectures and debates with artists and prominent thinkers, here in collaboration with Meteor.
