This gathering is with the significant queer theorist and writer Jack Halberstam (author of Female Masculinities, the Queer art of Failure and many more!), come join us for a talk on Trans Anarchitectures in an informal setting with wine and hanging out.
About Trans Anarchitectures:
My work on anarchitecture and collapse began, predictably perhaps, with an encounter with the work of artist Gordon Matta Clark from the 1970’s. Matta Clark’s work, his cuts and splits and spirals, the gaps that he built into abandoned warehouses, homes and offices, left behind a vocabulary with which to describe not progress or becoming, not development and building, but the unraveling, chaotic, messy forms that voracious real estate development leaves in its wake and that in turn offers an opposition to gentrification, real estate capital, normative embodiment and individual success. When we return to the an/architectural experiments of GMC, we can find traces of earlier, potentially more radical projects than those that came to be compatible with liberal capitalism and we find them speaking in the language of unbuilding, breaking, cutting, collapsing, opening, dismantling. This lexicon has become potent in an era of real estate domination, market economies, profit domination. But what does it have to do with transness? A group of trans artists including Jesse Darling but also Yve Laris Cohen and Cassils all utilize anarchitectural vocabularies on behalf of theories of trans embodiment that emphasize the cut of surgical transformation, the demolition of the binary, the twisting of bodily forms away from the perfect and the true.
