QUEERING TRADITIONS: an evening of performances, screening and discussion

Organised by CUNTemporary

MONDAY 10 DEC 2012, from 18:30 until midnight

@ The George Tavern, 373 Commercial Road, E1 0LA, London, U.K.

‘Queering Traditions’ will present a selection of artists’ videos and performances that attempt to re-configure the perception of vernacular traditions and nationalism according to new registers and idioms. The works have been selected in relation to their present engagement towards the rituals, traditions and nationalisms the artists belong to or have related to. These explorations will re-appropriate, deviate and criticise the written, oral, personal or political traditions and ideologies. A discussion will follow and a performance from sound artist Nik Rawlings and Russian artist Tatiana Baskakova will precede the screening. The programme is part of a series of events, pop-up shows, performances, talks and screenings that are organised by CUNTemporary.
