Unknown is part of A- - -Z's (Anne Duffau) research through the screening of works that explore & defy preconceived/imperialist hi.Stories of identities & bodies. Through the scope of narratives & distinctive genre ranging from art, youtube mash-up to music videos, the aim of this screening is to break boundaries & raise interest in terms of displacement, otherness & post gender. Extending our ongoing research into the notions of amorphous body through technology and inner space, one important point is to embracing the Uses of the Erotic referred to in Audre Lorde to make the personal Political and the bodily a weapon.
