12th April @ Shift, Berlin
To introduce you to Us inc. and the exciting new venue, Shift,
we are throwing a cheeky pre-party. All the donations will go towards
our project for Month of Performance Art 2013. So.... bring your friends and lovers and
party mice to get involved in making Us inc. as exotic as possible.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
From 29th - 31st May Amy Cade & Leen Horsford are curating Us inc.,
a 3 day project at Shift, playing with the performativity of gender.
As we all know, gender is not black and white and we are going to
celebrate that fact with BBQ's, performances, people and party.
▶ Plus a surprise performance... watch this space for more details!
Full details and program on MPA-B here.
This is a project. And it is about us, as in all of us, including you.
We have three nights, and three different events, and we are going to meet each other.
Whether we talk or just listen, we will celebrate that when it comes to gender and sexuality,
there really is no black and white. Us inc. (Amy Cade and Leen Horsford) is a curatorial collective that
believes “It is not our differences that divide us, rather it is our inability to recognise,
accept and celebrate those differences.” (Audre Lorde) So let’s celebrate them!
By playing with the performativity of gender and sexuality, the project invites people to come together for
three evenings of performative events to share, laugh, talk, and play,
so that everyone can be part of Us. Hosted at Shift (Tresor), the new art space
offering a platform for artists to present themselves and their work that opened in January 2013,
directed by Leon Ludwig Barth, Us inc. will take place over 3 evening.
