ArtLeaks Gazette #5 Launch Event at S.a.L.E. Docks (Venice, Italy)

May 7, 2019

We are very happy and proud to announce the release of our latest issue of the ArtLeaks Gazette, entitled ‘Patriarchy Over & Out. Discourse Made Manifest’. 

Editors (Corina L. Apostol, Vladan Jeremic and Rena Raedle) and contributors will present the Gazette during a public discussion at S.a.L.E. Docks (Dorsoduro 265, 30123 Venice, Italy) from 3-5 PM on Friday, May 10th, 2019. 

S.a.L.E. Docks is located: Near Punta della Dogana, in Dorsoduro.

How to get there : Actv line 1 (stop: Salute), Actv lines 2, 5.1, 5,2, 6.1, 6.2, (stop: Zattere), Actv lines 5.1, 5,2 (stop: Spirito Santo). Private dock nearby.

The Gazette brings together contributions that analyze concrete practices and campaigns, and which engage theoretically and intersectionally with relevant issues related to queer, trans, feminist, first nations, racial, and economic justice. The diverse contributions in this issue – including poetry, petitions, lyrics, visual art, activism, manifestoes, and critical essays – confront nationalist discourses, colonial violences, orthodox regimes, misogynist cultural and political programs, crises of identity politics, and the remaining legacies of white supremacy, considering not only overall conditions in the artworld but also local specificities. While the contributions are diverse in their political and cultural scope, their common target remains toxic patriarchy in all its nefarious manifestations. The writers, musicians, artists, activists, filmmakers, and poets featured in this issue envision and demand a different reality and future. To summon Planningtorock’s words from All Love’s Legal (2014): ‘I don’t want to wait, patriarchal life, you’re out of date.’

The gazette includes contributions by: Planningtorock, Judith Goldman, Susanne Sachsee, Ashon Crawley, Kim Bode, Magdalena Zurawski, Nitasha Dhillon, Ana Grujić, Bridget Daria O’ Neill, Mickey Harmon, Joshua Lam, Jasmina Tumbas, Divya Victor, Scene & Heard, Nosotras Proponemos, Erika Balsom & Elena Gorfinkel, Shanté Paradigm Smalls, We are sick of it, Imani Henry, Betty Yu, Mimi Thi Nguyen, Paris Henderson, Boineelo Cassandra Mouse, Amanda Fayant, Van Tran Nguyen, Selma Banich, Nina Gojić, Ena Jurov & Tajana Josimović, Fred Moten & Corina L. Apostol, LaKisha Simmons, Matt Applegate & Andrew Culp, Shannon Woodcock, Chiara Bonfiglioli, Danai Anagnostou, Katja Kobolt & Anna Ehrenstein, Alyssa Schwendener, Tanya Loughead, Mima Simić

More information about the exhibition Oceans of People at S.a.L.E Docs:

“OCEANS OF PEOPLE, The project analyzes the impact that the tourist industry has on Barcelona and Venice, pointing out common issues and facing under various points of view the different effects. The narrator’s voice belongs to the collectives, committees, and associations that are struggling to defend their environment and common goods, criticizing the prevalent model of touristic development which is threatening the survival of these two cities of heritage. Through photos, posters, videos and interactive installations, tourists and citizens are invited to think about how their behaviors and daily actions can influence these processes of cultural and urban decay. There are also other consequent alarming phenomena to deal with, such as gentrification, the impact of cruise ships and its masses of tourists, the transformation of commercial activities and the consequent loss of local traditions. The aim is to face the values of these endangered heritages, trying to empower the collective denunciation reaction and to push for the administration’s intervention.”
