Every now and then an image, a theme or an issue materialises as an edition of RealTime takes shape, spookily permeating its pages. Everywhere in RealTime 93 it’s the body: shrinkwrapped (Shrink, cover), mimicking (Chuncheon International Mime Festival), apocalyptic (Black Marrow), ecstatic (Miracle), regional (On Edge), indigenous/cosmopolitan (Burning Daylight), reversing (Hye Yeon Nam), participatory (Tank Man Tango), punk (We’re Living on Dog Food), doubled (Geminoid Hl-1), superhuman, and as performance engine (Run), music (Soundstream) and land (Garma). Neither fetishistic nor narcissistic, these explorations (Thinking Through the Body) and performative states of being are indicators of art as lived in the body, locally, globally and interculturally.
