„The Re-appropriation of Desire in Public“
Emma Haugh with Paper Visual Art
Sonntag 29. Januar 2017, 19 – 21:30 Uhr
‚Having a Kiki: Queer Desire and Public Space‘ – published by Paper Visual Art (PVA) and edited by Emma Haugh – at Archive Kabinett on Sunday 29 January 2017. The launch will be accompanied by Haugh’s exhibition ‚The Re-appropriation of Sensuality‘, as well as a reading and conversation with PVA coeditor Adrian Duncan and Emma Haugh.
‚The Re-appropriation of Sensuality‘ is a long-term, collaborative project by artist Emma Haugh. The project seeks to reformulate representations of desire and the politics of architecture, looking at the relationship between body knowledge, performance, and the anatomy of space. Underpinning the work is the question: How do we imagine a space dedicated to the manifestation of trans and queer-feminine desire?
‚Having a Kiki‘ presents an intersectional examination of public space and the built environment through queer, dyke, and transgender perspectives. Building on research and collaborative exchanges that have formed Haugh’s artistic practice, this volume brings together essays, fiction, and artistic contributions that consider how desire is shaped and limited by the built environment, but also how queer, dyke, and transgender desires might in turn shape that environment, imagining alternative models of what the public sphere might be.
