Saturday april 2nd 16.00h
This evening we explore the questions: how do queer methodologies and perspectives shed light on the world of media art and practices? What knowledge and input from queer theory, antiracism and decolonization has been overlooked until now? What can we learn from each other? This evening will be presented in collaboration with The Pink Cube (NL), a platform dedicated to the visibility and appreciation of queer art and culture, moderated by board-member Belinda Hak. We will be joined by LUNA Young Master Cas Thorsen and artist Katie Ceekay.
