The ASCA research group Bodies, Genders, Sexualities and the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Analysis are honored to host DARKMATTER: a New York based trans south asian performance art duo comprised of Alok Vaid-Menon and Janani Balasubramanian. They will be performing in Amsterdam as part of their European #ItGetsBitter Tour.
#TBT back to when we were told as queer youth that it was supposed to “get better.” What they forgot to tell us is that gay rights are often only for gay whites! With an increase in racist and queerphobic violence and a state that uses our bodies to advance its imperialist agenda at home and abroad, what’s become apparent is that LGBT rights have become co-opted. JOIN DarkMatter for a night of poetry, polemic, and healing as we not only critique -- but also imagine new queer futures.
Show followed by Q&A.
