This session focuses on Queer Beograd, a transnational collective active in Beograd Serbia from 2004-2011. The collective’s ‘Border fuckers Cabaret’ scripts were produced as part of their underground festivals and are collaborative works between writer and subject, used as a tool for political education and story telling.
Together we read two texts, ‘Forensic Anthropology’ (2009) and ‘Anti-fa Fags’ (2006), as examples of experimental non-academic feminist writing. This is an opportunity to open a discussion on intersectionality, collaborative working, ‘authentic’ voices and the concept of ‘Border Fucking.’
Recommended background reading is Bilić, B., & Dioli, I. (2016). ‘Queer Beograd Collective: Beyond single-issue activism in Serbia and the post-Yugoslav Space.’ In B. Bilić & S. Kajinić (Eds.), Intersectionality and LGBT Activist Politics: Multiple Others in Serbia and Croatia. London: Palgrave Macmillan.
This meeting builds on earlier explorations in the Feminist Duration Reading Group on experimental feminist writings, including forms of storytelling, genre crossing, and collective authorship.
