How would we construct and express identity without bodies?

From first impressions to ‘finding your tribe’, identities are formed, projected, assumed and reinforced in an increasingly image-conscious world. How would our experience of identity (ethnic, gender, sexual, ableness, age etc.) differ in a hypothetical non-physical world where we were not constantly assuming identities – voluntarily or otherwise – based on aspects of our physical appearance?

Asked by:

What's more important: answers, or questions? Are the ‘big’ questions - life, the universe, everything - more important than ‘little’ ones? Does a good question provoke debate or laughter, lead to certain answers or create reflective pause? Can it change laws, minds or lives? Are questions the best answers?

The Interrobang – a new festival from the Wheeler Centre – is looking for the best questions in the world.

Ask your questions and vote on others, then join us on 27 – 28 November for a feast of frequently unanswered questions – as we present your most controversial, revealing, funny and insightful ideas to a 25-strong Brains Trust of the world’s most inquisitive thinkers.

So pose your burning questions. We’ll build this festival on your curiosity, so brace yourself – and wonder hard.
