September 2017 - New & Old Art Works

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

In October I'll go to Sweden to give two talks about my work as a queer activist promoting queer feminist art. The events are a part of the 2nd Nordic Rainbow History & Art Month celebrations in Sweden. It is very exciting. I am looking much forward to talk about queer feminist art and to show some examples of old and new art works.

Last week I was in London to give a short presentation about my manifesto 10 Dogme Rules For The Dance Style of ‘Queer Tango’ at The Queer Tango Salon, a symposium and dance event. I came a few days early and stayed on a couple of days after the queer tango event, and I met with queer artists Sarah Jane Moon, Mare Tralla, Donna, Birgitta Hosea and Anna. Thanks for taking your time to meet with me. I appreciate very much our conversations and am happy that you have shared your ideas with me. - While in London I also went to see the exhibition QUEER BRITISH ART 1861–1967 at Tate Britain. It is a part of the UK celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the decriminalisation of male homosexuality in England. (Just for the record male homosexuality was decriminalised in Denmark in 1933.)
