Deep Trash Italia

Deep Trash Italia

Fundraiser night “DEEP TRASH ITALIA: Eurosex Edition” opens the call for artists with deadline Friday 11th July 2014.

Due to the great demand that followed the first exhibition-club night “Deep Trash Italia”, CUNTemporary is now accepting new proposals for the second episode of this unique event: calling for performances, dance, videos and interactive artworks to be shown on Saturday, 30th August 2014. “DEEP TRASH ITALIA: Eurosex Edition” will take place at the East London venue Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club in support of Archivio Queer Italia – the first Italian platform on queer art, theory and activism.

We accept proposals by artists of any artistic background and nationality. Themes may include, but are not restricted to:

  • the impact of TV & pop culture on sexuality
  • the sexual politics of “canzonetta” (pop song)
  • the influence of gossip on general knowledge
  • the agency of kitsch, camp and humour on culture and aesthetics
  • how pastiche challenges normativity, essentialism and originality
  • fashioning sexualities
  • feminism and the soft-porn generation
  • the influence of ethnocentrism on gender and heteronormativity
  • critique of nationalisms and their construction through the media
  • translating (or failing to interpret) cultural differences

1) Name and surname;

2) Place of birth (city and country);

3) Place of residency (city and country);

4) A written proposal (no more than 500 words) and, if available, images of the work;

Curators aim to respond to all applications as soon as possible. The selected artists will be notified by 15th July 2014. Deadline is Friday, 11th July 2014.

The Archivio Queer Italia (AQI) project was founded by Giulia Casalini (co-director of CUNTemporary) with the support of CUNTemporary in London. AQI is the first Italian platform for queer art, theory and activism. This project aim consists of the incorporation of a database to create a virtual archive of artistic, theoretical and activist expressions related to Italy. Moreover, the project is for creating spaces and mobile events for the display of such activities (e.g. art fairs, museums, institutions, street interventions.)

Parallel to these activities AQI regularly publishes news on queer and feminist issues and lists events and activities taking place in Italy. AQI also organises “Teoremi”, a bi-annual itinerant performance festival against sexual and gender discriminations in Italy.
