OPEN CALL for “DEEP TRASH ITALIA is NOT FOR SALE”

DTI3_logo_DG_3-01

DEADLINE SAT18OCT 2014

OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS & WRITERS fundraiser night “DEEP TRASH ITALIA#3 is… NOT FOR SALE” at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, London (Saturday 29 November 2014)

CUNTemporary is now accepting proposals for the third episode of the unique exhibition and performance club night “Deep Trash Italia”: calling for performances, performative lectures, dance, videos and interactive artworks to be shown on Saturday 29 November 2014. “DEEP TRASH ITALIA is… NOT FOR SALE” will take place at the East London venue Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club in support of Archivio Queer Italia – the first Italian platform for queer art, theory and activism.

We accept proposals by artists of any artistic background and nationality. We are also keen to hear from writers responding to the call either in a written form (theory, auto/biography, poetry or fiction) or through a performative lecture. A collection of texts from this and all other Deep Trash Italia exhibition/club nights will be published in 2015.

This event’s themes are connected to capitalism and the value of money, commerce and production in society. Proposals may include, respond to, be affected by, but not restricted to:

  • Queer-feminist anarchism
  • Queer failures, alternatives to the dominant ideas of success, dethroning the serious
  • Art and post-fordism: branding, market and globalized art
  • Art and the commons: activism and socially engaged practices
  • Objects and the poetics of consumption
  • Non-capitalism and community-based economies
  • Zombies of capitalism: loss of identity and physical slavery
  • Invisibility and working conditions in capitalist societies
  • The socioeconomic implications of affective labour
  • Precarity, unpaid labour and the economic crisis
  • Controversial relations in colonial exploitations
  • The impact of advanced capitalism and biogenetic technologies on humans and environment
  • Pleasure and its discontents: disrupting the neoliberal body
  • (Homo)sexual consumption and technology
  • Can sex work or pornography resist the production-consumption chain?
  • No future: queer perspectives on family and (re)production
  • Subversive motherhoods
  • Mainstreaming subcultures and queer practices

To apply please email Giulia Casalini at info@archivioqueeritalia.com with the heading “DEEP TRASH APPLICATION” and include the following information:

1)      Name and surname

2)      Place of birth (city and country)

About Archivio Queer Italia

The Archivio Queer Italia (AQI) project was founded by Giulia Casalini (co-director of CUNTemporary) with the support of CUNTemporary in London. AQI is the first Italian platform for queer art, theory and activism. The two strands of this project consist of:

  1. The incorporation of a database to create a virtual archive of artistic, theoretical and activist expressions related to Italy.
  2. Creating spaces and mobile events for the display of such activities (e.g. art fairs, museums, institutions, street interventions).

Parallel to these activities AQI regularly publishes news on queer and feminist issues and lists events and activities taking place in Italy. AQI also organises “Teoremi”, a bi-annual itinerant performance festival against sexual and gender discriminations in Italy.

PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE and ARTISTS’ FILE HERE <

Following the success of our first event, the Deep Trash Italia fundraiser exhibition-cum-performance-club night gets regular at the Bethnal Green Working Men’s club (back every 3 months with different themes!).

For ONE NIGHT ONLY we will fly you on our special SUMMER TOUR across the best and worse of EUROSEX culture: a ‘Bad Porn Cinema’ room, trashy TV and ‘sex sells’ commercials, dirty games, kitsch and campy aesthetics, vintage soft-porn that will make you LOL, diva fashion, melting popsicles and bikinis… and all the dance and pop music that everybody secretly loves! Get wet and wild for a hot summer night with:

DJs Fantoni & LoGatto and The Coolness pumping the beats of international hits and Italian camp and trash classics, from Disco to the present.

PERFORMANCES (starting at h 19:00): Theatrestate’s Fanny Hill Project, Juntee & Nikko, Giulia Tommasi, Emma Allegretti & Hanna Junti, Jennifer Picken & AnnaMaria Pinaka, VDREY Feat SHULTZ, Leaky Vessels and grand finale with A Man To Pet!

Time Out (Critics’ Choice) says:
“Pizza. Silvio Berlusconi. Italy’s contributions to history have been
both awesome and… not-so awesome, and this fun-filled night
invites you to celebrate both categories in brilliantly trashy style…
So, head to Bethnal Green and find out what it’s like to live la dolce vita!”

Deep Trash Italia – Eurosex Edition is in support of Archivio Queer Italia – a sister organization of CUNTemporary (London) – the first Italian platform on queer art, theory and activism. Curated by Giulia Casalini with CUNTemporary Team.
