Montreal Pride

Still, sweet, lighthearted, vindicating moments are found within this narrative, such as when Felicia „Snoop“ Pearson is taught how to walk in high heels by her femme friends for an audition. While lighthearted, this moment points to the performativity at the core of the roles prescribed not only in that community, but in society at large. In contrast, more serious moments deal with examples of community members policing each other’s appearances and the consequences of those dynamics. Overall, the film remains relatively nonjudgmental, as Onuorah explores why these identities are important to those who hold them. GLAAD-nominated documentary The Same Difference focuses on the lives and communities of black lesbians in the United States.

Mbembe’s works on Necropolitics is timely when examining the case of Palestine especially during the covid-19 pandemic. The division and control over space/territory and the use of technology are two crucial characteristics. Then, by situating the context in the global picture, I discuss how popular media culture is itself forms of surveillance to normalize certain discourses and ideologies, and part of the surveillance capitalism through the Netflix television series Fauda . The examples I investigate are two different types of media products; one is from Fauda to critically study the relationship between technology and race, and connect them it to the present reality. The second part includes reviewing how the discourse of surveillance and use of technologies show up in media articles, official statements, and reports from civil society organizations during the pandemic in Israeli English news outlets. Using a poststructuralist political economy approach that takes into account discursive as well as political-economic components, I examine some of the most prominent bills of digital rights, such as the IGF’s Charter of Human Rights and Principles for the Internet.

Which future scenarios can be seen or devised from the perspective of the Teufelsberg area? How can such scenarios be transformed into a performative language and which spatial and narrative means are available for this? And which roles do subjective and especially collective bodies play for the development of such a language? This Body Mapping Lab will examine those questions while working on a collaborative performance to be presented on the last day. Besides this structural change of the event design, we are very pleased to be able to present, yet another year, a program with some historically important performance artists alongside a number of renown and emergent artists from around the globe. The Adrian Howells Award for Intimate Performance is an opportunity for an artist to develop and present a new performance based project in Glasgow and London. The Award aims to celebrate the intimate work that Adrian pioneered and excelled at, as well as providing an opportunity to explore new territories in this field of practice.

Montreal International Reggae Festival

Of Colour quickly organized a public meeting, drawing representatives from 21 organizations. Over two hours, they acquainted Glenbow officials with the history of queer culture and censorship. The Glenbow, for its part, requested that organizers submit their films to the Alberta Film Classification board, but ultimately the festival continued. Despite all of the panic, sensationalism, phone calls, and threats to call in the police, only two protesters showed up at a meagre rally against The Fire I’ve Become.
