We have released video documentation of the symposium PERFORMING THE OCCULT: Magick, Rituals and the Monstrous in Live Art on YouTube.
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?
Between the supernatural and teratological, this symposium opened 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’.
