24.09.2021 – 03.10.2021

This year’s Luststreifen Film Festival’s kick-off is the queer art exhibition Lust*Art, showing omnipotent queer deities, a lust soundtrack, a loud anti-hetero manifesto in installative form, and other works that break with norms of sexuality and gender. This year the focus is on “consent”: what does consent look like in a Dom/sub relationship, where does consent become visible in dialogue with bodies, how does consent work in relation to disability? Explore queer art in the form of photography, comics, interactive computer games and much more. New this year is the cooperation with the artist residency La Chotte from Salavaux (VD).

In an open panel, guests and interested audience are invited to discuss queer art in Switzerland and the visibility of consent on an artistic level. The vernissage will take place on September 24th starting at 7pm with two performances and artists present. Competition to Art Basel? Sure, just much queerer. The finissage will take place on October 3rd with a performative reading. 

Lust*Art: Warteck, Burgweg 7, 4058 Basel, 3rd floor.

Listening station of Lusttonspur: ROXY Birsfelden. Contemporary theater and dance productions, Muttenzerstrasse 6, 4127 Birsfelden,
