The aim is specifically to not answer this question, but to instead embrace the diversity of all outcomes. QUEER IS NOT A MANIFESTO aims to create a space of radical imagination where a multitude of undefined positions can exist alongside one another.
QUEER IS NOT A MANIFESTO is first and foremost a digital podium. Anyone can contribute their interpretation of queer on www.queerisnotamanifesto.com. In the long run, the website functions as a living/ever-growing document that keeps a real-time account of what queer is or could become.
For the Stedelijk Statements launch of QUEER IS NOT A MANIFESTO the first 10-15 contributions will be presented live, running back to back to create a living collage of queer propositions. These propositions will take the form of lectures, performances, videos, fits of rage, sound pieces or any format that the presenter best feels supports their interpretation of queer. Contributors will include a mix of activists, artists and scholars that not only aim to disturb dominant notions of gender and sexuality, but also to strive for the disruption of prevalent colonial, patriarchal and neoliberal narratives. QUEER IS NOT A MANIFESTO abides to an intersectional vision. Any voice can feel unheard when speaking alone for their singular cause. QUEER IS NOT A MANIFESTO aims to interweave a multitude of voices and create a cross-dialogue that, when unified, strengthens the building of a movement.
