Queer Gossip / Overhearing
The best gossip you stumble upon. It appears by surprise, usually while you are busy with something else.
The proposed format of this workshop is to engage in zine-making while overhearing Ari Ban share parts of his research on queer history. Using examples of (self)-portrayal in literature, painting and photography, he points towards a historiography that resists patriarchal chronologies.
It’s an invitation to craft, to sloth, to be in conversation in the presence of forgotten symbols and anachronistic storytelling.
is an illustrator, writer and garderobier, currently studying Contextual Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. His main focus is researching queer history, particularly through studying biographies and collecting intimate details within them. This shift of attention towards the relational is Ari’s foundation for his work with drawing and text.
This is an open-level workshop for everybody. If possible, please register beforehand. Or just show up!
