Book Launch: Queer Diasporic Futurity by Flatness
Join us for a book launch of ‘Queer Diasporic Futurity’, including a programme of discussion and performance by contributors Amardeep Singh Dhillon, Beth Bramich, Daniella Valz Gen, June Bellebono, Nat Lall and Shama Khanna. With food and drinks provided by JarSquad and Community Apothecary.
Queer Diasporic Futurity is developed in partnership with not/nowhere artist workers’ co-operative, will mark 9 years of the Flatness curatorial platform for artists’ moving image and network culture, bearing witness to the decentralised QTIBPOC (Queer, Trans and Intersex identified Black and People of Colour) networks it has come to form a part of.
The publication contains a collective call to restore loving connections to the body and to nature. The collection makes visible a vital network of practices focused on sustainability, accessibility and futurity. QDF reflects on the holistic conditions the book’s contributors are creating in order to disassociate less from the exhaustion of everyday overstimulation and disappointments, and to begin to identify new, potentially transformative felt connections to build upon.
Queer Diasporic Futurity is published in partnership with not/nowhere artist workers’ co-operative and designed by Design Print Bind.
This limited edition book will be on sale at the event for the launch price of £14.
QDF is also available to buy online: flatness.eu/
