Sex in Public: 11th Survival Kit Festival, Being Safe is Scary

Annual festival, Riga, 2020, curated by Katia Krupennikova

‘The notions of safety and security are central to today’s political imagination. They are used to provide rationales for wars, nationalist agendas, racism and inequality, and to legitimise and normalise extensive surveillance and self-surveillance, aggression, hatred, insularity and other reactionary attitudes and policies. The politics of fear feeds upon precarity. Whole systems of domination are built upon the fierce illusion of protection, encouraging brutal competition and enforcing both financial and moral indebtedness.‘ Festival text excerpt
