Concept︎





You may or may not read this concept. You may or may not actually attend this event, whether you say you are 'going', 'interested', or not – probably based on the GEGEN images you have seen online. The emojis in your comments may or may not express your excitement. You may be taking pre-party selfies in your bathroom mirror while asking: Are you skinny enough? Muscular enough? Passing enough? Is your image sexy/queer/transgressive/flashy enough? Pharmacopornographic capitalism markets an (anti-)aesthetic that makes you depressed. Affect economies financialize your subjectivity. 'Likes' and 'followers' consecrate pop/sub-cultural idols, exalted to the extent they seem authentic while producing influential miracles. You have been educastrated into both aspiring to and detesting these iconic standards, to fetishize every commodity and commodify your fetishes. It is enough to recognize this divisive and absurd spectacle, to understand its false tragicomic performance – for in death is also life and liberation is the reconquest of life.
Pleasure cannot flourish unless the false guilt of binaries is eliminated.
A free man is gay and loves women.
This is a question of survival at a time when algorithms influence our dates.
Leave your digital surveillance device at home (or in coat check).
Reinforce aniconic taboos.
Don't come as you are.
Come as you are told not to be.
Come as you never thought you wanted to be.
Come dance together, as limp-wristed dykes or hard-bodied twinks, in the lysergic shadows of the fog machine.
Plot polymorphic perversions.
Mix straight fantasies with queer dark room desires.
Release your aesthetic potential.
Come as the image you hate.
Destroy your self-image.
Be GEGEN Image.
