Dorota Sajewska

She studied Polish and German philology at the Warsaw University and modern German literature, theatre studies and cultural communication at the Humboldt University of Berlin. In 2008–2012 she was deputy artistic director of the Dramatic Theatre in Warsaw.
Her scientific interests oscillate between culture studies, historiography and anthropology, theatre, performance and contemporary art. Sajewska explores performativity of the body and materiality of objects, as well as interrelations between theatre, politics and media.

She is an author of various publications on theatre and performance, theatre scripts and three monographs.

Liliana Gómez (Hg.): Performing Human Rights

The invisibilization of political violence, its material traces and spatial manifestations, characterize (post)conflict situations. Yet counter-semantics and dissonant narratives that challenge this invisibility have been articulated by artists, writers, and human rights activists that increasingly seek to contest the related historical amnesia. Adopting “performance” as a concept that is defined by repetitive, aesthetic practices—such as speech and bodily habits through which both individual and collective identities are constructed and perceived (Susan Slyomovics)—this collection addresses various forms of performing human rights in transitional situations in Spain, Latin America, and the Middle East. Bringing scholars together with artists, writers, and curators, and working across a range of disciplines, Performing Human Rights addresses these instances of omission and neglect, revealing how alternate institutional spaces and strategies of cultural production have intervened in the processes of historical justice and collective memory.
