Perla Mode



In «you can find me in the lexicon, in the lexicon» queerness is asserted, placed and tested in selected archives. Fictions are slipped in and references made. Thus, for instance, the archive serves as a setting to renewing public testimonial, a temporary rewriting of history. The documentary, which has long been perceived as the image of the world, here becomes the world as image. From the 5th to the 7th of June, guided tours, public readings, performances will intervene in existing archives that bear no obvious relation to queerness. In their interplay, the archive and the works performed therein influence each other, bringing to light other connections by following and rewriting on-going narratives.
