Discussion on gender and non-binary

Dear friends,

In the frames of “Gender Corpora” International Feminist Queer Festival #2 (curator: Susanna Gyulamiryan, co-curator: Femlibrary), join us on October 11th at 7:00 PM at FemLibrary (Pushkin 43) for a meeting and discussion with artist masharu and photographer Maria Zakaryan. During the event we will be exploring topics of gender, non-binary and various identity-related issues.

Nonbinary is an important part of the history of gender politics and social identity, and still forms a crucial site for political contestation. Nonbinary identities are vital for revolting against gender norms, as well as challenging how physical and emotional expressions are disciplined and policed.

There are many examples of nonbinary figures and experiences that resonate with indigenous knowledge and people throughout history. In the frames of “Gender Corpora” International Festival #2, masharu is also presenting their research on this matter, in the form of a Gender map. You can get more detailed information about the research here: https://www.masharu.nl/Nonbinary

The meeting will be in both English and Armenian with a sequential translation.

We look forward to seeing you there!
