The Re-appropriation of Desire in Public
Emma Haugh with Paper Visual Art

The launch of Having a Kiki: Queer Desire and Public Space – published by Paper Visual Art (PVA) and edited by Emma Haugh was accompanied by Haugh’s exhibition The Re-appropriation of Sensuality, as well as a reading and conversation with PVA co-editor Adrian Duncan and Emma Haugh.

The Re-appropriation of Sensuality is a long-term, collaborative project by artist Emma Haugh. The project seeks to reformulate representations of desire and the politics of architecture, looking at the relationship between body knowledge, performance, and the anatomy of space. Underpinning the work is the question: How do we imagine a space dedicated to the manifestation of trans and queer-feminine desire?

Contributions by Oreet Ashery, Claude Cahun, Faye Green, Emma Haugh and Suza Husse, Frankie Hucklenbroich, Libida Club Archive, Kaj Osteroth and Lydia Hamann, Sideroom (Amal Alhaag and Maria Guggenbichler), Neo Sinoxolo Musangi, and Eimear Walshe.
