Visualizing Queerness

Talk by Jack J. Halberstam in English.


The photographs and other images that I want to look at furnish evidence of lost subcultures even as they verify that the queer subculture, and the eccentric bodies that composed it, did exit and exist again now in new and different forms. Some of the artists I consider here contemplate the transgender body as otherness itself, as representative of a shadow world subtending and propping up the so-called real world; others lavish regard upon what Del Legrace Volcano calls the "sublime mutations" of queerness and the twists and turns of the journey of queerness into and out of visibility. Other artists create a visual language of ambiguity, instability, inauthenticity and mutability in order to describe and invent postmodern forms of subjectivity.
