Beursschouwburg — BEURSCAFE — 20:30

Video, in its inception in the 1960s, was not considered an art form, but rather remained excluded from the defined art system. The function of video did not emerge independently of other art forms (visual art, dance, theater, performance). The American and European movements of the 1960s –Fluxus– provided the context to understand Video as an abstract medium with all the attributes of modernist work: dispersion, reproduction, ephemeral, theatrical and interdisciplinary.

Homografía has been showing queer art in the video genre since its creation in Mexico then in Brussels, in direct liaison with performance as a crucial point. This year’s selection is unique, a challenge that gave a one and only screening in Beurscafé transformed into a community centre free of access. 

Please check the Cinema for more videos from Latin America as we have given a Carte Blanche to Cuorum Colectivo from Morelia, Mexico. In the Red Corridor. Free from 16.00 till 22.00

La voie de la rose — Belgium — 2023 — 18:31'

‘La Voie de la Rose’ translated to ‘The way/voice of the rose’ is a documentary about love and politics in which the rose is considered ‘the woman’ alongside its multifaceted symbolism. We see the rose as a carrier of meaning at protests, in a café, in a garden, dried on a notice board, in a drag show.

The Sketch — France — 2023 — 09:23'

I learn to speak French and by doing so, to sculpt my reality. In an artist’s studio in Paris, I meet Linda Demorrir, a living model. Like me, she is transgender and an immigrant. When she speaks, moves, sees the world, I am fascinated. As I draft her outlines, it is myself also that I learn to draw in this new country.
