Queer Paris

2013-04-06 17.27.32

May 25 – June 1, 2013

The team of Parsons students will travel with professors Jess Irish & Jane Pirone for a one-week collaborative design workshop to interrogate a hyper-local, multi-sensorial experience of Queer place/spaces in Paris from the perspective of the “outsider”. This perspective will be leveraged through hands-on, psychogeographic explorations and field work into the representations of difference, identity and sexuality.  Emphasis for these design probes will be on embodied experience and the cultural production of Queer artifacts and spaces, including the ideas of memory, mapping, & history, and speculative futures.
