Domestic Optimism:
The Lazerbeam Theirstory Projects, Workshop

As part of the series Body Politics in the Exhibition Context curated by Fiona McGovern & Nora Brünger with Kunstverein Hildesheim & University Hildesheim

This workshop shared interconnected research and propositional work involved in the making of the project Domestic Optimism. The central question for the group was how can we approach the spatialising and embodying of speculative imaginaries in exhibition contexts?

With a focus on the disruptive force of the queer working class body in institutional and ideological space (the museum, historical narrative, architectural discourse), Domestic Optimism unfolds long term research about modernist architectural and design histories in a de-colonial key.
