Happening as part of @Gaybar‘s Fuck What They Think programme, the club will screen four films that focus critically on queer identity in relation to health care systems. Specifically, how queer identity “arises and is legitimised by state legal systems and institutions of health”, questioning notions of what constitutes a body and care.
The film programme includes Marlon Riggs‘ ‘Affirmations’, Ron Athey‘s ‘4 Scenes in a Harsh Life’, Neil Bartlett‘s ‘That’s what friends are for’, and an interview with Aldo Hernandez talking about ACT UP Oral History Project.
In the press release, Cottington writes, that the artists selected “refuse the barriers to intimacy” and indulge in “the erotics of care in spite of queerphobic state negligence and hetero-moralist policing”.
