THE SPRAWLS – THE PHOTOS

Gender can create a sensory experience of tangible and virtual borders, as well as conscious and unconscious ones. These spatial and cultural frontiers are essential points of reference for our own identities. Our limited, and simultaneously real and ephemeral bodies can be stimulated in order to provoke an evolution on, and a transgression of, oppressive social codes.

In the frame of The Sprawls, our work focused on queer strategies as political tools to rebel against gender constrictions and body policing. With an experimental and playful approach, we explored and reclaimed the concepts of gender, sex, and sexuality and establish new personal and social realities. We also addressed the gendered borders of institutionalized knowledge in order to analyze the constructs that can manipulate our understanding of power.

The Sprawls presented the work of artists of various disciplines in the form of talks, intimate performances, live music and audiovisual art with a common focus on the borders of gender and gendered borders. This artistic approach took place at GlogauAir (Glogauer Str. 16, 10999 Berlin) on the 24th and 25th of March 2017.
