Body on the Barricades is about thinking about life and freedom from the points of confinement. It is about the act of breathing from the point of breathlessness. It is the ultimate resolution of the body to cross the barbed wires. It is the situation in which we cannot breathe but we breathe. As the authoritarian regime pushes its boundaries, curtails our life and freedom, we have no option but to walk. The situation gives birth to a new politics, a new resistance, new resolution, a new realization. Breathing — a natural and unconscious act — becomes a conscious act. What was physiological becomes political. The right to breathe becomes a new assertion, name of a bare minimum that one asks for.
