Tuesday April 9 ~ Deltaworkers presents: Tracing my Lover's Wrinkles in a Non-linear Way ~An image-rich talk on queer time by Simon(e) van Saarloos (DAI, 2020) and performance by Maryboy.

07.04.19 | tag: New Orleans
Can a 30 year age difference between two lovers result in something other than 'having a past' versus 'having a future'? Inspired by Jack Halberstam's quest to illegibility and to live a life that cannot be traced, Simon(e) celebrates her invisible lover (because woman, because older, because queer). When together, random people identify them as mother and daughter. Simon(e) reappropriates the apparent incestuous outlook of her relationship as she tries to imagine a non-linear future.  
 
Drawing from Denise Ferreira da Silva and Paul Preciado as well, Simon(e) questions how time approaches us and how we approach time.
 
Maryboy is a genderqueer, andro glam drag star based in New Orleans.

Simon(e) van Saarloos is a US born writer and philosopher, living in Brooklyn, NY and Amsterdam, NL.
