Hélène Alix Mourrier

This documentary is a portrait of Cuco, a person who identifies themself transbird [human and non-human transgender] and hacker [situation hacker]. Their transition is consistent with the 2010 law prohibiting the covering of the face in public space; with the security hardening linked to the fight against terrorism, public space is now prohibited, annihilating any possibility of being in the world for them. Their identity - perceived by the police as undesirable and potentially dangerous - is actually a relational identity, the experience of limits but also of the link, recognition and community.

Ivy Monteiro

Guaca Polla and The Suitcase Sisters in Pride Issa Riot
2020, 7’18”
The mother of the House of B. Poderosa, activist and multi-disciplinary artist, Ivy Monteiro a.k.a. Tropikahl B. Poderosa teams up with the legendary drag persona Evalyn Eatdith, one of their children Hausvrau B. Poderosa, Jo Dyking and takes us on a flamboyant journey through the underground of drag glam and the ever insisting battle against marginalized figures.
The work is a campy honoring to the fallen ones and at the same time a critique to the values that intersects LGBTQIA+ movement and Blackness. A unique collage that speaks to the struggle of everyday Queer life and of the spaces that are often forgotten.

Film by Juma Issa Song It’s not my Choice feat. Blood Orange written by Mykki Blanco, Haus Gawaling x Nexpo
In the tibetan tradition there is a saying: “When there’s a high mountain behind your house, it means eternal luck.”
Haus Gawaling is located in the heart of Mathon at the foot of Piz Beverin, one of the highest mountains in the Schamserberg area. Rigzin Palmo Koondhor and her three sisters acquired the former hostel in 2009 as a perfect place to host large tibetan community gatherings. The history of the tibetan folk is rhythmed by rebirth and resilience. There was always a way to rise from the ashes and bloom where they were planted. While displacement and injustice has, at times, distanced them from their cultural traditions, their ancestors have always had a unique relationship with nature. Following the tradition of collective solidarity and care the art residence Haus Gawaling will curate a yearly summer program organised by Lhaga Koondhor and Doris Dehan Son with collaborators and artists addressing the contemporary societal themes of identities, migrations, environmental challenges and wellbeing.

In a humid steamy metropolis, dimly lit by blue neons, a creature weaves in and out the streets. Their goal is at the top of a tower. United again, the two beings merge into a viscuous texture created by their own pleasure. They liquify in their passion, between languid embraces and powerful movements. Saliva as a healing fluid and water as a symbol of purification, the two creatures evolve between liberating ecstasis and the dissolution of their body. Hybrid, the body becomes a simple vessel allowing their soul to experience the intemporal carress that the sexual act offers.
