Queer Museum Vienna
How to collect and present the ever evolving, transgressive, uncomfortable, and troubling? How to present the missing and the lost? Who has the power and who has the right? Who decides what is legitimate? To understand the in-flux nature of trans* histories, subjugation, the resistance to heteronormativity and patriarchal domination we look at ways to challenge the scarcity of materials account for trans* lives and experiences. The exhibition and the various events (workshops, performances) present micronarratives of trans* representation while embarking upon a creative campaign to shine a light on some of the complexities of trans* living and experience in the eastern and southern parts of Europe. In collaboration with the Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art we are building a Trans*folk toy collection to expand trans*/queer representation through hybrid figuration and noise.
