An artistic approach to the borders of gender and gendered borders
Hosted by COVEN BERLIN
24 - 25 März 2017
Eröffnung am 24. März 2017
Gender can create a sensory experience of tangible and virtual borders, as well as conscious and unconscious ones. These spatial and cultural frontiers are essential points of reference for our own identities. Our limited, and simultaneously real and ephemeral bodies can be stimulated in order to provoke an evolution on, and a transgression of, oppressive social codes.
In the frame of The Sprawls, our work will focus on queer strategies as political tools to rebel against gender constrictions and body policing. With an experimental and playful approach, we will explore and reclaim the concepts of gender, sex, and sexuality and establish new personal and social realities. We will also address the gendered borders of institutionalized knowledge in order to analyze the constructs that can manipulate our understanding of power.
The Sprawls will present the work of artists of various disciplines in the form of talks, intimate performances, live music and audiovisual art with a common focus on the borders of gender and gendered borders. This event will take place at GlogauAir (Glogauer Str. 16, 10999 Berlin) on the 24th and 25th of March 2017.
