Considering Evidence, Artifacts & Heirlooms: Queer Home 2020
For months, spaces we have occupied have been limited to our bodies in environments we have constructed and call “home.” For many queer people, the nature and contents of those spaces reflect of our histories and understandings of our relationship to worlds outside as well as conscious manifestations of our longings. This workshop will examine how our homes embed evidence, artifacts and heirlooms that express of our needs, defenses, aspirations and love of our selves.
