AMOQA (Athens Museum of Queer Arts) is a hybrid, self-organized platform for the research and promotion of arts and studies on sexuality and gender, operating in Greece since 2016. With a queer and transfeminist agenda, AMOQA springs from the fragility woven by networks of affects and intimacy.

Simply by calling itself a museum, AMOQA activates an in-between, mutant, precarious, vulnerable space at the margins of the art institution, allowing it to occupy spaces that are unfamiliar or unrelated to activism. A museum that is not a museum and a queer archive without the means to actually archive, operating in the context of the Greek financial crisis.

In this podcast, the visual artist, performer, and co-founder of AMOQA Maria F. Dolores talks about witches and covens, about bodily and theoretical knowledge, precarity, archiving without adequate resources, and working as a collective, about inclusion and antagonism, survival tools, cracks in the system, and mixed feelings, about dissident paths and deviations, and about the need to seek affinities in the South. The text that Maria proposed for the group dynamic during the “Pigs Self-Management” workshop at MACBA interrupts and complements our conversation.

Lucía Egaña
more

Lucía Egaña is an artist, writer, teacher, and anti-racist transfeminist activist. Lucía is a misfit researcher who for years has been implementing protocols designed to self-institute practices and spaces underpinned by a collective approach. Her methodology is undisciplined (or, as she says, subnormal), championing the bizarre, dirty, and marginal as a fertile testing ground for various relational, educational, and/or artistic devices. In this podcast we talk to Lucía Egaña about pedagogical processes, bibliographic dissent, wild writing, and the generative and affirmative potential of rage. We discuss identity politics, single-sex spaces, friendship as an engine for research, and the power of processes organised around informality and affects.

In FONS AUDIO #52 Cabello/Carceller talk about their two works in the MACBA Collection: 'I Don't Care about Your Gaze Anymore' (February 1994) and 'A/O (The Céspedes Case)' (July 2009-July 2010). Through them, they reflect on blurred identities, on the diverse possibilities of genders and on the need to create new representations that disrupt the traditional patterns structuring our gaze.

Zenaida Osorio
more

Zenaida Osorio provides a critical reading of the official account of Radio Sutatenza and of the representations of peasants in the archive. Through this case study, Zenaida reflects on the contrast between the national images (in this case Colombian) that are considered legitimate by networks of civil servants, media producers, and academic researchers.

Élisabeth Lebovici
more

Élisabeth Lebovici reflects on the AIDS crisis during the eighties, and on the crucial role of conceptual art and activism in shaping the new visual and affective paradigms which gave voice to communities that the capitalist, liquefied society was (and still is) striving to smother. We also talk about poetry, pornography, and all that art that museums balk at hanging on their walls.

Fefa Vila
more

Fefa Vila Nuñez is a queer feminist ‘artivist’, sociologist, mother, essayist, teacher, and many other things. Fefa was one of the founders of the lesbian collective LSD (1993-1998), which was, together with La Radical Gai, one of the touchstones of queer artivism in Spain in the 1990s. Through their political-artistic actions, LSD and La Radi defended new ways of understanding the body, sex, life, death, desire, friendship, family and work relationships, and political action. In this podcast, Fefa Vila reflects aloud on queerness as a state of radical estrangement, which is constantly being redefined. She also talks about the need to experience other forms of sociability, about other affective-relational models and about motherhood.

We shared some mates with val flores as we chatted about queer pedagogy, writing, and microactivism. We touched on teaching practice as political practice, on queer dissidence as a means to activate deheterosexualisng know-how, and on the need to inhabit and write our identities in new ways that break down gender, race, and class boundaries.
