Speaker: LGBTQI+ rights and the Party for Freedom

queerseries3-pff-8707The Queer Series is a set of public events that aims to highlight and contextualize queer elements in art, collections and archives. Organizers and curators are Bas Hendrikx and Léon Kruijswijk. The first part of a new trilogy of events was devoted to LGBTQI+ and the extreme right in the Netherlands. After a screening of Oreet Ashery’s Party for Freedom (2013), that zooms in on Pim Fortuyn, body politics, Geert WIlders and sexuality, Kruijswijk interviewed me. The evening was thus about nationalism, homo­‐normativity, and the capability of art and popular culture to create queer spaces.
