CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: HomoEconomics
The Pop-Up Museum of Queer History seeks submissions for its upcoming show HomoEconomics.
The show will explore the diverse histories of Brooklyn’s waterfront and will pop up around Brooklyn in Summer of 2013. This year’s show will consist of two parts: a series of broadsheets that present historical topics visually, to be posted on streets around Brooklyn’s waterfront, and a series of performances, talks, community gatherings, and related events to further explore the waterfronts and the stories they hold. We intend to start new conversations about the queer history and contemporary life of Brooklyn.
We are especially interested in proposals that investigate the connections between race, class and sexuality in Brooklyn waterfront spaces and surrounding neighborhoods; and proposals that make use of local and national archival collections at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, the Lesbian Herstory Archives, the Brooklyn Public Library, Brooklyn Historical Society, and San Francisco’s GLBT Historical Society, among others.
Individuals and teams should propose projects that are thought-provoking and engaging explorations of the history of the Brooklyn waterfront as a queer space.
PROPOSALS DUE APRIL 22 [MORE INFO]
