On Riots, Grief and Parties
MACBA (Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona)
On Riots, Grief and Parties widens our understanding of the history of sexual dissent and racialised activisms through archives, interviews, documents, photographs, videos and other materials. The exhibition traces an alignment of key moments in feminist culture, the LGBTIQ+ and sexual dissidences by focusing on a variety of queer identities, parties, sex, civil rights and strategies of resistance to oppression.
Curated by: Grup Dissidències Sexuals a la Ciutat de Barcelona PEI 2019-2020, coordinated by Lucía Egaña.
The Independent Studies Program (PEI) at MACBA is a learning mechanism whose fundamental goal is to mobilize critical thinking and activate the political imagination, at the crossroads between artistic practices, the social sciences and political-institutional interventions.

Paris – Galerie &co119
Foto Femme United, in collaboration with Galerie &CO119, is launching its first ever exhibition on the theme of social media censorship.
«Social network giants such as Instagram and Facebook demonstrate, through acts of censorship, that the female form can and should only exist in a very restricted space. Simply because a person is naked, doesn’t mean that they should be sexualized. They are even going so far as to censor feminist activism and making it difficult to have a voice or a platform. This exhibition was created for the purpose of providing a space for photographers to show their censored or banned art, as well as to educate the public on the injustices taking place on social media.» – April Wiser, founder of FFU.
Opening: Wednesday, May, 15th (until 2020, July 31rst)
119, rue Veille du Temple
The book is available at the Galerie &CO119
