The body as a sign

Cabak Rédei, Anna LU (2005) In Heterogénesis: Revista de Artes Visuales
Abstract
When does the body become a sign? By studying the importance of social norms in our understandings of gender and bodies, an argument can be made that mental processes (inner signs) are results of perpetual negociations with the world outside (outer signs). In some cases thus, gender is not perceived to coincide with the body and therefore certain bodily parts may be conceived as signs.
