Queer City – São Paulo
Residency at Lanchonete.org

with Jean-François Prost
from February 11th 2016 to March 5th 2016

Queer City is a project focused on the relationship between
queerness and life in the contemporary city.

Is a six-month inquiry on queerness and
life in the contemporary city – something relatable to the
idea of French philosopher and sociologist Henri Lefebvre of
a Right to the City – that will engage local (and international)
artists, activists, urban planners, architects, researchers,
thinkers, and simply people with whom we share the city.
Queerness is a broad term, one that can certainly be
linked to a range of LGBT+ politics and realities, as well as
histories, futures and places. For our purposes, the launch
program seeks to open a discussion on how we live and
work in, share and survive the contemporary city, with São
Paulo as our outlook. We are therefore equally interested in
acknowledging common ground and understanding counter
narratives. By the end of the six-month cycle, we only hope
that suggesting a lens of queerness will have encouraged
fruitful discussions and joint interrogation of how we share
the city.
