Friday 1 February – Saturday 2 February 2013

Charming for the Revolution is an experimental Congress of artists, activists and thinkers, seeking to unpick underpinning, pressing questions of contemporary sexual and gender politics; exploring strategies that divert and destabilise normative gender and its representations.

The series of events features films, a performance and a symposium and brings together the UK premiere of Wu Tsang’s award-winning film Wildness; a symposium convened by Carlos Motta with Xabier Arakistain, Esben Esther Pirelli Benestad, Giuseppe Campuzano, J. Jack Halberstam, Beatriz Preciado, Dean Spade, Terre Thaemlitz, Wu Tsang and Del LaGrace Volcano; a performance by Carlos Motta and Matthias Sperling; and a screening of works by Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz.

A discounted combined ticket is available for Gender Talents: A Special Address, Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz screening, and Wu Tsang screening. £20 adult / £15 concessions. Please call 020 7887 8888 to book this offer.
