Texte Zur Kunst 32/129 (Mar. 2023) Trans Perspectives
The March issue of TZK centers perspectives of trans artists and writers. They call attention to transmisogyny and intersections between racism, anti-Semitism, and transphobia in the art field as well as to the potentials of (digital) spaces and (artistic) practices for trans people. Methodologically, many contributors to the “Trans Perspectives” issue, which is co-conceived by Luce deLire, ground their work in a particular trans materialism: combining lived experiences with a critique of visibility politics or institutions, they question, among other things, how trans materializes in the art market, in museums, and beyond. [publishers’ note]
The issue gathers texts by Farah Thompson on Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley; by Lex Morgan Lancaster on Young Joon Kwak and Kiyan Williams; by Jules Gleeson on Kim Petras; as well as essays by Luce deLire, Hil Malatino, Ginevra Shay (“Fragments of a Missing Intersex Archive”); a conversation between Jeanne Vaccaro and P. Staff and Kiyan Williams; a roundtable discussion with Kübra Uzun, Chris E. Vargas, and Vidisha-Fadescha; but also reviews of Wu Tsang’s MOBY DICK; or, The Whale by Jo Giardini, and of a Greer Lankton exhibition in NYC by McKenzie Wark; etc.
