KEYWORDS: Biopolitics, body mapping, morphogenesis, embodiment, digital 
culture, performativity

ABSTRACT: Communication technology is a key in the articulation of global 
standardisation in late capitalism. The biopolitical paradigm of social control 
is shifting towards new forms of technological embeddedness through new 
technologies of the body. Logocentric and discrete representations of the body 
are a key to the articulation of the standard model of technology and its 
constructions of corporeality. In dance and technology and other disciplines 
there is a potential to generate technological models that defy the logos and 
propose a paradigm open to multiple and changing specificities, going beyond 
the postmodern paradigm of performativity and parody into a new realm of 
metaformativity as both aesthetic and political paradigm.

Keywords: biopolítica, postestructuralismo, políticas del cuerpo, comunicación 
no verbal, cultura digital, danza y tecnología, teoría queer, metaformatividad

Resumen: El artículo propone una revisión de los paradigmas de poder implícito 
y biopoder en el tardocapitalismo, y del papel que desempeña en los nuevos 
dispositivos biopolíticos la formalización del cuerpo y la comunicación no 
verbal. Propone el término metaformatividad para definir una teoría del cuerpo 
y la realidad como campo de fuerzas comunicantes, y abre así un horizonte 
crítico y productivo que excede al discurso textual de la performatividad. Se 
elabora una crítica de diversos esencialismos de la cultura y el arte digital y 
se esbozan los potenciales del arte digital y la danza y tecnología para la 
elaboración de nuevos territorios de resistencia y especificidad tecnológica y 
estética. Por último, se exponen algunos proyectos desarrollados en el marco 
del Instituto Reverso.



Keywords: biopolitics, post-structuralism, body politics, non-verbal 
communication, digital culture, dance and technology, queer theory, 
metaformativity

Abstract: The article proposes a revision of biopolitical paradigms and seeks 
to redefine the relations between implicit power, communication technologies 
and the non-verbal aspects of communication. A shift of paradigm is proposed 
which concentrates on the critique of the implicit relations between technology 
and language, redefining communication and the body as metaformative processes, 
thus surpassing the textual dimension of the theories of performativity, and 
opening up a new critical horizon for politics and aesthetics. It follows with 
a critique of logocentric and technopositivist paradigms of digital culture and 
reviews the potential site of media art and dance & technology for the 
production of specific technological models in a context of resistance to 
implicit mechanisms of standardisation. The article concludes with a 
description of projects developed in the framework of the Institute Reverso.
