Crip Magazine and other projects

Med afsæt i materialer fundet i popkultur, historie og sociale bevægelser beskæftiger Eva Egermann sig med, hvordan ting, situationer og kroppe opfattes som normale. I 2013 publicerede hun Crip Magazine som, blandt andre projekter, præsenteres i talk og i workshop i rum46.


The talk and the workshop inquire into the presence of deviance in aesthetic representations and ways to create, publish and distribute different sorts of materials through the medium of magazines, art projects and various sorts of cultural productions, challenging "normal land". We will look at appropriations and resistances from social movements concerning disability, illness, abnormality and deviance in different times and places, and furthermore discuss art projects, texts, concepts of theory, materials in the Crip Magazine and the projects by the participants or context-based ideas.

Crip Magazine and Other Projects

"Writing is a "technology of cyborgs," as Donna Haraway puts it. Cyborgs struggle against perfect communication, the one "code" that translates and transmits all meaning perfectly. This is the way cyborgs insist on noise and advocate pollution. Noise Publishing." Eva Egerman is working with materials that are found in Pop culture, History and Social Movements often dealing with how things, situations and bodies are perceived as normal. She makes videos, installations, performances, magazines or organizes exhibitions. Some of the projects, such as the Crip Magazine, will be presented together with other research/materials that also will be be discussed more closely in the workshop.
