“Queering TASTE: Total Affirmation”
“Queering TASTE: French Kisses”
With “Queering TASTE. The art of failure is not hard to master / though it may look like a disaster“, District Berlin and Kreuzberg Pavillon explore on the occasion of XCHANGE current trends in the curatorial field. For Act IV of the series “Curatorial Practices: Fields and Techniques”, initiated by District, the project „French Kisses: On Tips of Tongues, and Feeling as Taste“ emerged by the curator Amal Alhaag and the artist Maria Guggenbichler. “French Kisses” intends to explore a transgressive understanding of taste as an affective tasting of the other, touching of being touched. The artists’ collective ACAD & C will activate with the Heavy Petting Gallery at Kreuzberg Pavillon, a monthly exhibition format in which direct bodily contact to the artwork not only takes place, but is actively promoted. Together with ACAD & C, Kreuzberg Pavillon explores inclusive forms of art reception that blur the line between reception and production.
