Queering the Frame: Transgressive Performance & the Possibility of Freedom

Transgressive art shocks, titillates, enlightens and, perhaps most importantly, provides a space of inclusion for marginalized or neglected communities. At this vital moment, the role of queered bodies in transgressive art has become increasingly threatened and equally necessary. We will use the city as a canvas for our research.

This course will include both seminar discussions and visits to performances/ interventions/art exhibits in the New York City area. We will convene to discuss the readings and then visit spaces such as the MOMA, New Museum and performance spaces to engage in site specific research. Authors we will read include Coco Fusco, José Muñoz, Elizabeth Grosz, Judith “Jack” Halberstam, and Joseph Roach.

Each seminar has a separate event on Facebook to attend: Oct 27 | Nov 2
