The circulation of body visuals. The television context.
A milestone of BodyCapital, the ERC project focusing on the impact of body visuals produced for audiovisual broadcasting media across 20th century Europe, this study day invites us to look closely into the specific French television context. How has television taken over health and well-being topics? What kind of editorial lines and mise-en-scène did they choose? Was this only about relaying the institutional, governmental and commercial discourses, or did they include the critical approach that is specific to journalism? Our study approach is both specific and global. It chooses to highlight a show’s original approach or simply confront a whole set of programmes on the topic. By looking into contents submitted to censorship, we will also see which topic choices and types of treatment helped television push against imposed editorial limits. We will then examine the representation of the body within this corpus of visuals: gendered body, anonymous body, body silhouette, head, trunk, entire body, body in motion, body at rest.
