Flags for Queer Cruising Sites
Emma Haugh – ‘Flags for Queer Cruising Sites’ are performative, propositional objects, talismans for desire that offer a shifting and connective queer iconography. The works raise questions about the role of social space in shaping identities, the meaning of communal space for marginalised peoples, and the significance of public spaces for social visibility and safety. The works engage queers in collective ephemeral acts of ritualised land and property reclamation developing a shared imagination and re-appropriation of sexual utopias that feed a transformative queer politics, for pleasure, for care, for arsing about, for getting off.
To date ‘Flags for Queer Cruising Sites’ and ‘Clothes for Queer Cruisers’ have been embodied through collaborations with: District, Berlin as part of ‚Caring for Conflict‘
