QTOPIA QUEER ART FESTIVAL

SUBTERRANEAN GRIDS (2019) is a programme curated for the Research Labs in Eye Filmmuseum Amsterdam. The Research Labs provide a scope for a new generation of curators and artists to hone their skills. They do not follow a strict format and often result in a cultural crossover between film and other art forms. In collaboration with Judith Leysner, Luca curated a queer programme with the following conceptual baseline:
"What does it mean to belong in a communing sense of non-belonging? Queer bonding is a subterranean grid-practice in which our messy currents meet and spark below formal structures. Within institutions, we connect on underground levels. The selection of works is by current and former Sandberg students and can be approached as – but should not be reduced to – acts of queering dominant orders."
The programme presented films and performances by Rowena Buur, Vita Evangelista, Alice Slyngstad, and Derk Over.
