I am not a man I am not a woman I am not heterosexual I am not homosexual I am not bisexual. I am a dissident of the sex-gender system. I am the multiplicity of the cosmos trapped in a binary political and epistemological system, shouting in front of you. I am a Uranian confined inside the limits of techno-scientific capitalism. — Paul B. Preciado, An Apartment on Uranus
The queer-studies philosopher, curator, and author Paul B. Preciado will launch his latest book AN APARTMENT ON URANUS: CHRONICLES OF THE CROSSING—published by Semiotext(e)—which explores his transition from Beatriz to Paul, the Greek economic crisis, the refugee crisis, and the Catalonian independence movement.
Saturday, May 30.
Noon on the West Coast; 3 pm East Coast.
