My Beautiful Monstrosity: Exercising My Creation

Galo Moncayo, Absolvent des IoA, Studio Hadid (Institut für Architektur).
An der Ausstellung nehmen ehemalige und aktuelle StudentInnen der Angewandten teil.

My Beautiful Monstrosity: Exercising My Creation is an upcoming exhibition inspired by the poem “Yo, mounstruo mio” by the Argentine trans philosopher, artist and singer Susy Shock. Curated by Gabi Moncayo-Asan, it combines fashion design, photography, sculptures and poetry to demonstrate the subversive nature of queer auto-perception.

I claim my right to be a monster,
not man
nor woman,
not XXY
nor H2O.
Who am I? Who are we? We inadvertently ask these questions every day. Their answers lie in the ways we physically present ourselves to the world. Auto-perception is where an individual’s communication with the world begins, creating with it a sense of belonging to a community. Someone’s auto-perception of queer is subversive by nature, a break from society’s norms, from what’s expected and accepted, breaking with the heteronormative binary narrative the patriarchy has imposed on us.
Opening on July 10, 2020 at 18:00.

Fridays 15:00-19:00 or by appointment.
