schau.Räume_global - Mapping the Unseen

Mapping LGBTIQ
14th - 21st February 2020 8.-Mai-Straße 28, Raum 8, Klagenfurt, AT

The artistic research project Mapping the Unseen, based on show.Rooms_global took place in Croatia in 2019 and in Austria in 2020. The theme chosen by the Croatian partner Common Zone/Vox Feminae is LGBTIQ. After being shown as an event in Zagreb in November 2019, it was shown in Klagenfurt in February 2020 and extended with contributions from Carinthian artists and scientists. The connection to the Vox feminae/Common Zone association, which established the taboo topic to be shown, was made by guide Dina Ivan. As she lives and works both in Klagenfurt and Zagreb, she was a guide in this project. Subsequently, the team of show.Rooms/Mapping the Unseen with Vox feminae/Common Zone designed a program (with exhibitions, workshops, peformances, film screenings, discussions and lectures) in a gallery in downtown Klagenfurt entitled: Mapping LGBTIQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, intersexual, queer).
"Re-traditionalization of Croatian society, in the sphere of politics, media and education, is followed by re-traditionalization of culture and contemporary means of artistic expression. (...) This societal turmoil is hitting LGBTIQ community particularly hard." (Justification Vox feminae/Common Zone)
