Performance Matters – Potentials of Performance – Talking Tabloid Trans

Artist/Author: Jay Stewart with Raphael Fox | Reference: D2021 | Type: DVD

British Library Sound Archive recording and documentation of Potentials of Performance events (26-27 October 2012). This third themed year of the Performance Matters project features a vibrant series of commissions exploring and exploding the dialogue as a potential format for thinking through and testing possible futures. Talking Tabloid Trans appears as a series of prints and performed dialogue, which takes the form of a Sunday Magazine show paper review, will consider the tabloids and mass media items that posit being trans as negative, trashy, spectacular and scandalous, asking the questions: can we locate a queer project that looks to expose the normative and regulative structures which operate in mainstream media? How might we contemplate the ways in which trans in the tabloids, forms and contributes to pro-outsiderness and subcultural collectives?
