A Performance Workshop
MAR 7, SAT at 1PM-4PM
There’s a resurgence of performance that identifies as “queer.” What does it actually mean? What are the contexts that invite artists to use this word again, which stands in for otherness, anti-nuclear family aspirations, failure vs. capitalism, an aesthetic, inclusion and radical politics, and the foregrounding of sexuality or gender identity issues? These definitions as well as ideas from queer theorists such as J. Halberstam, José Muñoz and Lee Edelman will frame our explorations.
