Lecture by Lasse Lau: Queer Geographies – Between Hegemony and Antagonism
- Diese Veranstaltung hat bereits stattgefunden.
Edward Said wrote in his book Culture and Imperialism on the struggle over geographies, “Just as none of us is outside or beyond geography, none of us is completely free from the struggle over geography … [it’s a struggle that is also] about ideas, about forms, about images and imaginings.”
In this lecture, we will look into the interpretation of space and how we can better understand it from seeing at the micro-level. We will be exploring queer geographies of particular three cities; Tijuana, Beirut, and Copenhagen. We will examine how these cities intersect with gender and sexuality and how it affects social circulations.
Lasse Lau is an award-winning filmmaker and visual artist that in his work, always looks into the spatial dimension of power. He is also co-editor of Queer Geographies (2014) and The Second World Congress of Free Artists (2013). Lasse Lau studied at the Whitney Museum of American Art ISP, Berlin University of Art, and the Funen Academy of Fine Art in Denmark.
