Ways of Learning at BALTIC 39: (I get) So Emotional, programmed with Seán Elder

Lunch included, free and all welcome.

‘(I get) So Emotional’ is programmed with curator and researcher Seán Elder and looks to the politics of emotions when situated between people, institutions and cultures. Emotion and affect have been considered through a multitude of perspectives historically with recent articulations emerging from a context of austerity and global socio-political crises. This event presented gestures that embody belonging, subculture, and relational identity, as alternatives to these cicrumstances, in the context of Ways of Learning at Baltic 39.

Throughout the day, artist Gordon Douglas presented a series of Welcome Speeches, he addressed the group gathered in Baltic 39. The day included a screening of a reconstruction of David McDiarmid’s A Short History of Facial Hair, directed by Hermano Silva, and a session of the Queer Conditions Reading Group.

This was part of Ways of Learning BALTIC curated by Kim McAleese & Lucy Lopez
