Prologue: TENDER BUTTONS with the curatorial collective Electra from London
Tender Buttons is a part talk, part screening by Fatima Hellberg departing from works by James Richards, Auto-Italia, Wu Tsang, and Kajsa Dahlberg. The evening brings together practices engaged with questions of what happens when desire is conflated with technology, and what these slippages might mean for a politics of representation. Here mass mediums such as internet clips, video, and other pieces of found and recycled material join investigations into how one might find space for alternative subjectivities and a politics of gender and sexuality either within or in relation to mainstream image production.
