Queer Worker
Eine industrielle Essensperformance
von Mihai Lukacs

Tonkunst von Claudiu Cobilanschi
Texte von Sue Ellen Case, Frederick Douglas, Groupe Dziga Vertov, Jack Halberstem, Libertarian Communist Federation, Malcolm X, Proletarian Revolutionary Action Committee

(English version below)

Konzept:
Lass uns Leitmotiven von der Arbeitsklasse, Queer Theorie und politischen Utopien unterrühren und eine geschlechtslose gesellschaftsschicktslose Gemeinschaft backen. Da die Ausbeutung der Arbeitsklasse geht Hand in Hand mit der Unterdrückungen auf Frauen und Queers, lass uns der Klassenkampf zerplatzen! Unser Kämpfte um sexueller Justiz gehört mit sozialler Justiz zusammen.
Die Umverteilung von Güter sowie die Abschaffung vom Eigentum stehen in direkter Verbindung mit sexuellisierten und racialisierten durch Gender geprägten kulturellen Instrumente, die verändert werden müssen.
Darüber hinaus überschreiten die ungesellig-asozialle utopische Bewegung der “retro-future” sowohl die Interesse der höchstprivilegierten Elemente der Gesellschaft als auch das bestehende Bekenntnis zur Sozialismus als Politik, der weder queere noch feministische Aufzählungspunkte beinhaltet.

Concept:
Let’s mix working class leitmotifs with queer theory and political utopias and bake a genderless and classless society. Let’s explode the class war of the most promiscuous proletariat against the upper and middle class and expand the feminist, queer and anti-racist justice.
The exploitation of the working class goes hand in hand with the oppression of women and queers. Our struggles for sexual justice go hand in hand with those for social justice, the redistribution of goods and abolition of property goes hand in hand with changing the gendered/sexed/racialized instruments of culture.
The anti-social utopian movement of the retro-future goes beyond the interests of its most privileged elements or the existing commitment to socialism as politics with no queer or feminist bullet points at the end of the list.

PRIMVS
[poster detail: target shot by Jeanne with a Kalashnikov in Memphis, Tennessee ]

We moved up every year and were PRIMVS up to our senior years. A PRIMVS in our school was not the student with the highest grades. Others were much better at that sort of thing than we.
Someone was made PRIMVS because the authorities expected them to be a good influence on the rest of the class. As PRIMVS we had the keys to the cabinet where examination papers, chalk and so on were kept.
Some people stayed PRIMVS and were rightfully hanged as such. For us, the situation changed: we do performance art. And that’s why we are here: to put danger back into contemporary performance art (CPA). Fans love the thrill of coming to our shows knowing that their lives are in danger. Let’s use CPA as a weapon against society, the government, fascism and sexism – CPA is the fury from within you, CPA is revenge, CPA is your enemy and we are your enemy. We will do whatever it takes: if someone is in our way, we take them out. Our audience is our enemy: we don’t look at them, they are not our friends. Maybe we will consider you allies because you are strong enough to resist till the end of the show. There are no rules or limits in CPA, because when you establish limits there is no CPA.
