Workshop 3: A Completely Fabricated Evolutionary Trajectory (Mini-Version: Early Years)

In this multi-media presentation, Thaemlitz provides a self-conscious overview of various social, educational and work-related experiences that have informed the direction of her commercially distributed projects in the fields of music, writing, gallery arts and multi-media. Focussing on her youth and university years, personal history and story telling situate those projects within a larger context of cultural influences. As someone who is highly critical of notions of authenticity, authorship, originality, individuality or uniqueness, Thaemlitz attempts to twist the public discussion of his personal history as a means of questioning divisions of public- and private spaces… surely a doomed proposition.

15:00 – 17:00
Workshop 4: Deproduction

Presentation and discussion of „Deproduction“ (2017). We live in an era in which dominant LGBT agendas are increasingly revolving around themes of family, matrimony, breeding and military service. The cultural terms for social analyses and organizing around such issues requires an aggressive capitulation to peculiarly Western Humanist notions of the nuclear family, as well as private and public space. As a result, Feminist and Queer critical rejections of family structures (nuclear and otherwise) are increasingly scarce.
