Can witchcraft overthrow patriarchy? Are zombies the incarnation of the queer sick body? Can occult practices offer strategies to counteract normativity and the ‘post-truth’ reality we live in?

About

Between the supernatural and teratological, this symposium opens up debate on how the magickal and the monstrous in live art offer perspectives on queer-feminist ethics, post-colonial resurgences and anti-capitalist resistance by embodying, displaying and practising the perspectives of outcast and monstrous ‘others’.

Presentations by FoxGlove, Ivan Monteiro, Mette Sterre, Martin O'Brien and keynote lecture by Professor of Continental Philosophy Patricia MacCormack (Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge). Moderated by Giulia Casalini and Diana Georgiou (co-directors at Arts Feminism Queer).#performingoccult

The event will be followed by a drink reception. This event is part of the live art club night and multi-disciplinary exhibition ‘DEEP TRASH in the Underworld’, taking place on Saturday 21 October 2017 at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club.

The programme is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
