Description

Queer communities are heralding a cultural turning point. From recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings, to “bathroom bills”, to the massacre in Orlando, queerness is central to current social and political debate. Current events can mire us in an unrelenting present that makes it hard to imagine a path beyond. However, a new generation of artists are asking; Where do we go from here? How are queer communities imagining and working toward a better world? How does digital art embody queer futurity? This talk looks at several art projects that take up digital modalities, queer coding, and the aesthetics of utopia.
