Destroying Genders or Fucking Genders : for a no binary society.
Video of the exhibition. DVD. PAL 48mn
Male, Female ? Masculine, Feminine ?
Does this pseudo « natural order of things » mean anything anymore ? Isn't there something beyond gender, something which is still unthinkable because it is wordless ?
To what extent is the sex/gender binary a political system constructed to control individuals, without any « natural » basis ?
Why do some « identities » have to confront the binary norms in which they can't live fully ? Why this violence ? Is the Natural order of Things the last taboo, without which society would be at risk of collapsing ? How are some transgender and intersexed movements what could allow to question the old masculine/feminine foundations of our society ?
This project, through the portraits and self-descriptions of 17 persons, tries to speak the « unspeakable » :
How to live in less narrow, more fluid « identities »... ?
by denouncing forced assignment to sex and gender.
By denouncing forced injunction to sex and gender.
by fighting for the right to self-identification without marginalization, psychiatrization, pathologization, oppression...
by questioning the Natural Order of gender and sex.
