A QUEER FESTIVAL
What is actually queer? Who decides what’s ”queer” and what’s ”normal? This year do we want to dig deeper in these questions. West Pride lifts up norm critics/criticism and lgbt-peoples life situations through art and culture. We want to question what is considered normal and fight for LGBT rights to an unique expression. The festival campaign consist of three parts: A queer exhibition, A queer podcast and A queer blog. Art, culture and norm critics is going to transpire all of these parts.
A QUEER EXHIBITION
The national and international known artists Meritxell Aumedes (dance film), Mary Coble (installiation/performance), Martin Elgueta (gouache), Elias Ericson (drawing) and Nino Mick & Anna Jadéus (poetryslam/music) creates five works of art by the concept ”queer”. The result will be an exhibition at Stadsbiblioteket, in the center of West Prides program area Regnbågskvarteret. The opening of the exhibition is held on May 28.
A QUEER PODCAST
