1. Gunnarsson, Fredrik. Ritens aktörer : En studie över rituella utövare i Sydskandinavien under bronsåldern.

Degree: Archaeology and Ancient History, 2010, Uppsala University

Mainly focusing on the big picture regarding the research concerning the religious sphere in Bronze Age Scandinavia, the research field has been missing out on the smaller picture. The results have a tendency to produce a picture where the big landscape monuments, social structures and cosmology appear in the foreground. This essay is a comment to this phenomena and a methodological and terminological discussion regarding the way in which we as archaeologist’s works with questions about religion and rites. The main task though is to make an attempt in trying to identify the ritual performers and to answer the question whether it's possible or not to do that. This kind of work needs empirical studies with a theoretical background. The grave material can be the key to find these individuals since it's a context where the person’s belongings can be connected with the individual. The theoretical stance is that the Bronze Age research has been unable to identify these performers and that this in factcan be done. The etuis of belongings discovered for the first time in 1845 with the archaeological excavation of the Hvidegaard grave outside Copenhagen in Denmark, containing objects referred to as magical objects, can be one way to make these actors of rites come alive.The etuis of belongings and other grave material are presented in this work and a discussion about the graves material is made. The approach to study the bigger picture by studying the small empirical material is also made in this essay where a model of the ritual sphere is presented in the results with an attempt to show a none official cult existing side by side and in interaction with the official one.

2. DAVILA CASTILLO, NATALIA. Anatomía de un espacio abandonado. Transformaciones del espacio por medio del cuerpo del performer en Retorno de María José Arjona .

Degree: 2016, Universidad de los Andes

María José Arjona (1973-) es una performer colombiana conocida en el mundo de las artes principalmente por sus acciones de largo aliento.Éstas pretenden demostrar cómo en la ejecución de pequeños gestos durante un lapso de tiempo prolongado se produce una conciencia del cuerpo en el tiempo y el espacio. En Retorno (2008) la acción de larga duración se manifestó en dos fases: en primera instancia Arjona, aislada durante dos semanas, sopló burbujas de jabón teñidas de rojo contra las paredes y el corredor de una sala de cirugía abandonada. Luego, ya en la segunda fase, repitió el mismo gesto, pero esta vez con la presencia del público como testigo y con burbujas de jabón sin tintura, a fin de limpiar las marcas previas que aludían a la construcción de un acto violento. Se trató de un proceso de gestación y sanación de una herida. Un proceso en el que la experiencia corpórea es fundamental para entender cómo se transforma el espacio no sólo a nivel físico y atmosférico, sino también desde la recepción sensorial de los diferentes estímulos que se producen. + La pregunta a resolver sería, entonces, cómo en los dos actos del perfomance Retorno, La ausencia-presente y La presencia-el remedio, la presencia corporal de la artista transforma el espacio. Advisors/Committee Members: Guerrero Hernández Juan Carlos (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: arte contemporáneo; performance; performer; retornar; violencia; sanación; cuerpo; espacio; tiempo; transformación; fenomenología; percepción; sentidos; aura ritual; espectador; testigos.
