Hungry Is My Favourite Word


Hungry Is My Favourite Word

Hungry for evidence from what is underneath the canonical re-telling of histories, ‘Hungry is my favourite word’ invites to fantasise about the past, future and present.

Location: The Július Koller Society, Račianska 78, Bratislava 831 02
Curated by: Nora-Swantje Almes

The curatorial project Hungry Is My Favourite Word comprises a series of events. What to look for in the following months?

March: Queer-feminist diaries with Lucie Jarkovská (workshop)
April: Queer walking tour in Bratislava with Jana Zezulova
May: The launch of Luki Essender’s Book

How can we relate to the obscured past in which marginalised existences have been neglected? Weaving together references of historical role models, ephemeral gestures, more recent pop-cultural moments and contemporary visual culture, the exhibition creates an emotional landscape that constantly evolves. There is not one truth, nor one answer and there is no last word.

During the opening we are hosting a performance of Michal Dore. Come early, stay late.

Duration: January 26, 2024 – May 26, 2024
Open every Wednesday and Friday, 1-6pm.

The exhibition is part of the international project Islands of Kinship: A Collective Manual for Sustainable and Inclusive Art Institutions, co-financed by the European Union.
The event was financially supported by the Slovak Arts Council
