Ecstatic Utopias: Reorienting audiovisual Evocations of Place Towards A Relational Queer future

Project description

Artwork and relational queer futurity

Place may play a central role in human experience. An understanding of how we affect and are affected by the world engages artists and academics. Artists have explored visual and sonic memories of place through recorded time by using photography and phonography. The early stage researcher behind the EU-funded REPTARQ project aims to develop a new theoretical model integrating queer, political and cultural theory. The project will reorient the evocation of space towards a relational theory of queer futurity. REPTARQ will establish a portfolio of artworks based on levels of affected and affective field recordings, photographs and videos creating representations of space as it previously existed, to generate an emotive imaginary of a relational queer future.
