Symposium: Drama Department, Queen Mary University, London (Thursday 19 October, 2017)

Live Art Event: Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, London (Saturday 21 October 2017)

CUNTemporary is now accepting proposals for a new episode of ‘Deep Trash’, the unique multi-disciplinary exhibition and performance club night in London.

Calling for performances, videos and artworks to be shown on Saturday 21 October 2017 at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club. We accept proposals by artists of any artistic background and nationality. We are also keen to hear from writers and academics responding to the call either in written form (theory and cross-genre) or through performative lectures, which will be presented during the symposium ‘Performing the Occult: Magick, Rituals and the Monstrous in Live Art’. This will be hosted by the Department of Drama at Queen Mary University on Thursday 19 October 2017, with a keynote talk by Dr. Patricia MacCormack.

This call looks at the dimensions of the occult and the supernatural, witchcraft and magics, pagan rites and shamanism, voodoo practices and transcendence… We welcome proposals that engage with discourses of queerness, feminism, postcolonialism and blackness, and related artistic frameworks.
