Pedro Neves Marques: film still


Sentient encounters film night on queerness

Tuesday 27 September '22 AKI Enschede
16:30 - 20:30

English spoken
Join us and our guest curator Erik Martinson after your classes and some rest for another night with good food, pansy encounters, and a vibrant selection of artist films @ AKI Auditorium. At Inhale-Hold-Exhale we will ease into the night with the selection of four artist films.
In between the screenings and afterwards, we will discuss with one another how queerness can be meaningful in thinking through many forms of ‘non-human’ or ‘more-than-human’ encounters, and the agency of sentient beings that are involved in these encounters. After the screenings, we will engage Erik in a conversation about queerness, and hear about his intentions, curatorial experiences, and points of reference for this series.

Inhale-Hold-Exhale is a night on queerness and sentient encounters, and as Erik suggests in his introduction: it is also about carving a space out of time, a pocket of pauses built for defense, reflection, and organizing action.

NB Soon we will host a workshop on queering in/through artistic research. Keep an eye on our website for the full programme.
