Press section: Mercury Rising – Inter* Hermstory[ies] Now and Then

1. October 2021

Vernissage: October 14, 2021 at 7 PM
Exhibition: Oktober 15, 2021 – April 25, 2022

SMU’s first inter* focused exhibition is dedicated to the past and present of inter* movement(s) in activism, society, art and culture. Curated by Luan Pertl, Sylvia Sadzinski and an artistic-curatorial team, it explores fragmentary universes and utopias on the topic of intersex issues which, until now has often been filtered and handed down through the gaze of dyadic people, or still is.

The multimedia wall collage by Ins A Kromminga and Ev Blaine Matthigack searches for traces of ancestors and origins of intersex movement(s) and associatively relates positions of inter* artists.  In an installative space station by the duo Giegold & Weiß, the voices of intersex activists become audible and visible and an intersex utopia is created.

With: Adeline Berry, Hiker Chiu, Obioma Chukwuike, Giegold & Weiß, Mauro Cabral Grinspan, Sunil Gupta, Crystal Hendricks, Ins A Kromminga, Ev Blaine Matthigack, Mani Mitchell, Eliana Rubashkyn, Charan Singh, Rae Smith, Rebecca Swan, Del LaGrace Volcano, Sean Saifa Wall, Gaëlle ‘Gelweo’ Wolf.

Artistic and curatorial team: Luan Pertl, Sylvia Sadzinski, Ins A Kromminga, Ev Blaine Matthigack, Alex Giegold, Tomka Weiß.
