Queer heritage and its contradictions (Gothenburg Design Week)

Oct 24 2018

Venue: HDK - Academy of Design and Crafts, Kristinelundsgatan 6 - 8, 405 30 Göteborg

Urban Pamphleteer will feature in this panel event as part of Gothenburg Design Week on Wednesday 24 October, 16.00 - 18.00.

Presentations followed by roundtable discussion on queer space/heritage activism which gathers perspectives, provocations and vignettes on LGBTQ+ night-time spaces, past, present and future, with a focus on the different tactics being used to queer night-space, asking questions such as:

– What policies are in place to protect queer spaces and built heritage and how did they come about/how well do they work?
– Which spaces and LGBTQ+ groups are best protected and which, if any, are overlooked?
– What kinds of evidence are available to understand the heritage of queers spaces, past and present?
– How do shifts in identity categories that reflect expressions of minority sexuality and gender affect heritage classification and engagements with heritage?
