“What if all the living things were Sisters?” — Gérald Kurdian 

Gérald Kurdian uses electronic live music, performative sequences, videos and documentary art to create synergies that make it possible to relive the metamorphoses of the sexual revolutions of the 20th/21st century. His sensual collages feature texts on feminist and queer activism as well as interviews with people whose concepts of sexuality and/or gender extend beyond stereotypes. Donna Haraway’s changing mythological characters have as much part in this as the concept of eco-sexuality – sex with nature. This means probing the subconscious and calling for a celebration of utopian concepts of sexuality and the body. HOT BODIES – STAND UP is part of a series of works entitled Hot Bodies of the Future, a performative and musical research into queer micro-politics and alternative forms of sexuality.
