TATE X Otherness Archive: Rage & Joy, Grief & Play

Sat Jun 10 2023
Tate Britain, London UK

As part of this year’s festival, TATE has invited Otherness Archive to curate a film programme.

As Trans+ people we hold moments of joy, euphoria, and play in one hand, and grief, sorrow, and anger in the other. Soaking in joy and celebration of our communities is necessary to our survival, while recognising that our happiness is based on our safety and wellbeing is non-negotiable. In this film programme, we share how joy and laughter are necessary in our lives, because joy and rage can sometimes be one of the same — especially when combating anti trans laws and legislations to carve out a space for Trans+ lives to thrive.

Curated by Sweatmother and April Lin 林森
