Gestures and Nods
A Seminar on Cuir/Queer Approaches to Knowledge Sharing Through Performance
13:00

Bergen Kunsthall looks forward to host a seminar curated by Itzel Esquivel and co-produced with OCA (Office for Contemporary Art Norway).

‘Gestures and Nods. A Seminar on Cuir/Queer Approaches to Knowledge Sharing Through Performance’ is a two-day gathering reflecting on the notion of knowledge production through performance from a cuir/queer perspective at Bergen Kunsthall, November 25th — 26th.

Encouraged by cuir/queer methodologies, the seminar investigates ways of cuiring/queering knowledge production within art institutions through the collective experience of performance by and with invited artists and collectives who reflect around these notions. The seminar brings a cuir approach to the forefront, proposing a kaleidoscopic understanding of queerness from different points of view.

Featuring Malin Arnell & Mar Fjell, La Pocha Nostra (La Saula, Balitronica Gómez and Gerardo Juárez) with Pocha guests artists Muza de la Luz and Cecilio Orozco, Frances Negrón-Muntaner, Mabell Holand, Elina Waage Mikalsen, Asterisk, Safia Bahmed-Schwartz, DJ Amina Oui, and DJ Julie Silset.

‘Gestures and Nods. A Seminar on Cuir/Queer Approaches to Knowledge Sharing Through Performance’ is curated by Itzel Esquivel/Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA) and organised in collaboration with Bergen Kunsthall.
