Symposium, publication, web project (in collaboration with Suzanne van Rossenberg)
This three-fold project took a closer look at discussions around sexual identity. Their intention is to present an interplay among gender, art, new media and archaeology, by taking a closer look at the space between trans and gender, the space around the sign “/” which is meant as a moment to pause, to perceive everything not covered by our culture’s narrow terms ‘man’ and ‘woman’.
The symposium, the publication and the web platform were initiated and produced by Suzanne van Rossenberg and I. The symposium received financial support by the Piet Zwart Institute and the publication by MAMA CASH.
Contributors to the symposium included: cultural theorist Marieke van Eijk (Netherlands); art historian Doris Guth (Austria); artist Risk Hazekamp (Netherlands); archaeologist Marjolijn Kok (Netherlands); art historian and media theorist Verena Kuni (Germany); and curator Mirjam van Westen (Netherlands).
In addition to their contributions, the trans / gender magazine includes contributions by Jetske de Boer (Netherlands), Carla Cruz (Portugal), Agnieszka Czajkovska (Poland), Edward (Netherlands), Anne-Valerie Gasc (France), Birta Gudjonsdottir (Iceland), and Navid Nuur (Netherlands/Iran), and Eduardo Thomas (Mexico); cultural theorist Peter Verstraten (Netherlands), and artists Babak Afrassiabi (Netherlands/Iran), Amande In (France). Graphic design by Manuela Porceddu (Netherlands).
