The final anthology in the trilogy looking at contemporary queer lives.
What is joy? Is joy possible in the world today? If so, how do queer people imagine or experience it? Over 30 writers, artists and performers consider queer joy.
This is the first anthology to bring together artist’s writings and conversations about queer practice, describing and examining the ways in which they have used the concept of queer as a site of political and institutional critique, as a framework to develop new families and histories, as a spur to action and as a basis from which to declare inassimilable difference.
This collection of essays surveys the performance and promise of contemporary global artist-run centres and initiatives within the historical contexts that saw their emergence.
Catalogue to coincide with exhibition of the same name October 2 – December 5 2010 at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. Text in both Japanese and English.
