PROUD FLESH ITERATION 1.0 IS AN ONGOING RESEARCH INTO QUEER DESIRE, CRUISING AND ITS METAMORPHIC POSSIBILITIES.

URBAN CRUISING SPOTS ARE A PLACE WHERE THE INTERSECTIONS OF RACE, CLASS, AND SEXUALITY BLUR IN A DYNAMIC CHOREOGRAPHY OF SEEING AND BEING SEEN, DESIRE AND RISK. A MYCELIAL SETUP OF INTIMACY AMIDST THE PUBLIC. DEEPLY ROOTED WITHIN CIS GAY MALE CULTURE ITS FOCUS HAS BEEN ON A NORMATIVE, CIS MALE BODY AS THE OBJECT OF DESIRE. FOR ITS FIRST EDITION PRESENTED IN OCTOBER 27TH AT MOLT GALLERY BERLIN THE BERLIN BASED COLLECTIVE FATAL | VIOLET (LAUREAN WAGNER, ANNA K BITTER) BRINGS TOGETHER ARTISTS FROM SEVERAL DISCIPLINES TO CREATE A TRANSMEDIAL PERFORMANCE EVENING: PROUD FLESH. 

THE PRESENTED WORKS (INCLUDING OBJECT INSTALLATION, LIVE PERFORMANCE, VIDEO AND LIVE SOUNDSCAPES) AIM TO (RE)OPEN THE CRUISING TERRITORY AS A NARRATIVE SPACE FOR QUEER/NONBINARY BODIES AND THEIR BIOGRAPHIES THROUGH A SEX-POSITIVE, QUEERFEMINIST LENS. A PERSPECTIVE THAT QUESTIONS THE ROLE OF BODIES IN PUBLIC CRUISING SPACES AS WELL AS THE PART NATURE CAN PLAY AS ITS SETTING.
