dc.description.abstractIn the modern culture, the phenomenon of the “disabled” body is a intersection place of its ableist ideology, power relations and pseudoscientific explanations, and they are urged by the neo-eugenic project of the perfect world creating. As the prisoner of the biomedical discourse, such a body, deprived any agensy, loaded with the culture-historicaly constituted non-power, is a particulary suitable field of the mainstream culture for spreading almost archetypically powerful apocalyptic visions of confronting with the enemy’s otherness. For that reason, the underlying supposition of the article is that the “disabled” body, by means of the uniqueness of its morphology and anatomical-psychological structure, says nothing about itself, the basis of that it which would qualify to be a cult victim of the discriminatory gaze, but it is a reflection the culture frustrated by its own failure to produce an apsolutelly controllable order of things. Our ideas of demonic figure of the “disabled” body conceal the century-old (absurd and idle) negenotropic struggle of the Western civilization, conceptually supplied with the criteria, norms and standards of health, normalcy, beauty and the truth, instrumentally supplied with the preventive and rehabilitative provisions of medicine, cosmetology and fashion and institutionally supplied with asylums, to provide itself with kingdom of peace and serenity through pouring out any otherness, first of all the (sub)cultural one, intentionally reduced to the pure biological.eng
