I Can See Queerly Now

Leo Hosp

What does it mean to queer spaces? What are queer aesthetics and where can we find them all around us? How can we see queerly while collaborating with other humans and with our more-than-human ecologies?

These were just some of the questions I asked myself while researching queer perspectives on collaborative processes. I found some answers and even more questions while pursuing the practice of producing weekly short videos to stage and reflect on my process. By doing this, I not only investigated queer perspectives but explored working queerly: I got myself to produce something without perfectionism that felt even point-, sense- or useless at times and worked playfully, experimentally, self-ironically, purposelessly, and joyfully. The videos were like notebook pages, helping me to think creatively and to reflect on my research process.

All videos combined make up a season of multiple queer perspectives with weekly episodes. They narrate a complex story, starting with a voyage into queerness, shifting into queer perspectives on project work, touching upon investigating togetherness with our ecologies, and ending at celebration and rest.

To make them publicly available, I put all videos together in a YouTube playlist (accessible here), below you can catch some glimpses:
