Rheim Alkadhi, Our Current Dwelling Is Fire, 2018, Live appearance, projected image, spoken text (in Engl.)

A pixelated performer (in regional ‘emo’ style) appears behind a dais of smoke and before an artifacted, neo-liberalized desert. Queered anarchies, choreographies across borders, and surviving poison clouds; the body convulses – this is still emancipatory practice for some of us.

Followed by a get-together with coffee & cake.
