Carl Olof Berg

Artistic statement

I make research in masculinity and prestige within my artistic practice as choreographer. I put my body at play and in the center of attention using social interactive aspects of intimacy, ambiguity and humour. My body and its queer history is my method, material and ethos. My body is the document.
