There exists a complex, fascinating and controversial relationship between extreme sport, fighting and war. The artist Søren Thilo Funder works directly with this complex relationship in his artwork for the exhibition Go Extreme. This evening, we will have a talk with Thilo Funder, the former MMA fighter Tania Rahmani and Adam Bencard, who is scientist and MMA practitioner. The conversation will be about fighting as a sport, the body’s relation to fighting, training and disciplining as well as the relation between war and martial arts.
