International Womxn’s Day Keynote Address: Jack Halberstam, Trans* Anarchitectures 1975 to 2020

March 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Free

When we return to the an/architectural experiments of Gordon Matta Clark, we can find traces of earlier, potentially more radical projects than those that came to be compatible with liberal capitalism and we find them speaking in the language of unbuilding, breaking, cutting, collapsing, opening, dismantling. This lexicon has become potent in an era of real estate domination, market economies, profit domination. But what does it have to do with transness? A group of trans artists including Jesse Darling but also Yve Laris Cohen and Cassils all utilize anarchitectural vocabularies on behalf of theories of trans embodiment that emphasize the cut of surgical transformation, the demolition of the binary, the twisting of bodily forms away from the perfect and the true.

Speaker Jack Halberstam is the David Feinson Professor of The Humanities at Columbia University will give a lecture relating to Gordon Matta Clark’s work on anarchitecture.

The lecture will be held at the Harvard GSD Gund Hall Piper Auditorium on March 7 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm EST.
