ANNA RAIMONDO Present her project Q(ee)R Codes – Nouvelles frontières BXL
How does public and urban space refer us to our gender assignments and positions?
Under what conditions and for what reasons is a space perceived as safe or hostile for cis and trans women and for queer or non-binary people?
Between strategies of visibility and invisibility, what are our daily acts of resistance and emancipation in the street and with others?
Q (ee) R Codes – New Frontiers BXL 1000 is part of an itinerant, long-term artistic project initiated by artist Anna Raimondo. The project questions the presence and experience of cis, trans, queer and non-binary women in their cities. Via listening and oral research on the one hand and the creation of new spaces for imagination, confrontation and dialogue on the other, Q (ee) R Codes – New Frontiers BXL 1000 is intended to be a platform for reflection for tell and re-imagine the place of women – heard in a broad and non-biological acceptance – in the public space through the realization of a series of sound walks in the city center of Brussels with people from different geographical horizons and cultural, of various generations and social backgrounds and of various sexual orientations. Inviting participants to describe the spaces they inhabit through the sensations produced by these same places, as well as through their stories, their memories and the projections that nourish them, Q (ee) R Codes – New Frontiers BXL 1000 offers a sound mapping multiple of the city center of Brussels mediated by voices, bodies, subjectivities.
