Autobiographical inspirations have been a constant in contemporary creations. This includes, in the case of artists, mainly, the exhibition of their bodies, not only as a work tool but also as a starting point for narratives. How does the body cross the scene and support art in its social and political dimensions? Are there limits to this exposure? Are there limits between body and scene?
