For the 4th activation of the dissident desire the artists of the ƒƒ will present a slew of erotic impulses as follow up on their exhibition "Erogenous Zone". Curated with an attempt to show feminist, female, and otherwise peripherally represented perspectives on eroticism, the exhibition "Erogenous Zone" was shown throughout March and April of this year at Galerie im Körnerpark and Pony Royal in Berlin. The evening of August 8, a selection of the ƒƒ's archive will be on view and intermingling with the in-house archive of dissident desire at District. This is to be featured in conjunction with live performance, a poetry reading, and the visual realization of personal desires as presented by the artists.
dissident desire is an ongoing research project which investigates the production of political subjectivity in the practices of the everyday life. Taking its departure point from the exploration of the performative and bio-political status of contemporary bodies, dissident desire activates an expanded concept of precariousness as territory of dissident thought and practice. Structured in a series of chapters, dissident desire unfolds from June to December 2013 in the forms of an archive, public programs, a set of collaborative art projects, an exhibition and a publication. With the aim to create a “critical toolbox”, Chapter 0: Introducing Daydreams of Precarious Bodies presents a growing archive, which is activated and re-configured through thematic episodes, or reading parcours.
