Embodied Knowledge Can Tame Anything


Curated and edited by The Dowse Senior Curator Melanie Oliver, Embodied Knowledge/Can Tame Anything is a reader that gathers together writing from the mid-1980s through to today. In republishing some hard to find essays and commissioning new texts, it aims to enable readers, artists, viewers and writers to understand the histories that came before them, and plot their own courses into the future.

Embodied Knowledge/Can Tame Anything documents the exhibitions Embodied Knowledge/Can Tame Anything that were presented concurrently at The Dowse during 2018 as a way to readdress and make visible histories of feminism, critical theory, and installation art practice in Aotearoa New Zealand.
