This collaborative performance project began with the idea that all of Susan Sontag’s life and work took place in a gay bar. She never left the table. People come and go—styles, decades, regimes, and theories. This scene lead way to a loose formulation about performance, performativity, and theorizing the struggle and ingenuity of queer life. The scene of the gay bar, Everywhere, the refuge, ethics, desire, violence, telling. Rubbed up alongside the history of feminist intellectuals and the history of the Kitchen. I invited participating artists to respond to this formulation. Special thanks to Scott Valentine and Aliza Shvarts.
