WORKSHOP: A 1000 TINY SEXES

A 1000 TINY SEXES: CALL FOR WORKSHOP & WORK FOR PUBLICATION

Red Dawns will host the workshop in the name of its initiators (experimental film-maker, performance artist and writer Jaimes Mayhew and artist, researcher and digital media lecturer kanarinka from U.S.A.) -- with their approval, guidance and “virtual presence” through a powerpoint presentation.


Below you will find the projects' description and guidelines on how to submit your work directly to the initiators. However, if you intend to come to Red Dawns, then you are very much invited to join the workshop and imagine a thousand tiny sexes together with other participants. The workshop is free and open for anybody interested. Please, let us know in advance (until March 1st) that you are coming to: rdece.zore@gmail.com (Subject: A 1000 Tiny Sexes). The exact venue and time of the workshop will be published later on this blog and on www.metelkova.org/rdece

ABOUT THE PUBLICATION: The collection of A Thousand Tiny Sexes will be published as an artbook with an introductory essay by the editors, kanarinka and Jaimes Mayhew. We are seeking publishers. The publication will be available for sale once published. Submissions must meet the criteria below and the editors reserve the right to reject any submission.


Why SEX? This project seeks to create a collective reimagining of sex as a biological, legal, political, economic and cultural category. We want to catalalyze creative thinking about the ways that sex is multiple (more than just MALE or FEMALE) and the ways that sex is performative, embodied, durational, contextual and contingent. We want people to use the resulting publication to experiment with tiny ways and tiny actions to think outside the gender box.
