In Carolina Caycedos
Apariciones / Apparitions, queer bodies are like ghosts navigating through the Huntington Library in San Marino near Los Angeles. The long-term project My Songs by Polish artist Tomasz Machciński documents a series of improvised drag performances. In Eastleigh Crossing, Mwangi Hutter shows a guerilla action that challenges social convention on the flooded streets of Nairobi. Techno Gender: Pyramid Revealed by a Sandstorm by Raju Rage refers to Paul B. Preciado’s book Testo Junkie and gives insight into the emotional impact of testosterone therapy through a desktop video collage. In Season of Migration to the North, Lars Laumann juxtaposes Eddie Esmail’s escape from Sudan to Norway with the experiences of Ruth Maier, an Austrian Jew who fled to Norway in 1939 and was murdered in Auschwitz in 1942.
