Zones of intimacy, transgression & taboo with the In Excess group exhibition as part of 3hd’s 2021 edition

In Excess, a group exhibition as part of 3hd’s 2021 edition — Power Play — is on at Berlin’s Park Center Treptow, running October 3 to 31. With installation and video from artists including Peaches, Reba Maybury, Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings among others, the works respond variously to transgressive sexuality and an embrace of taboo. Installed within a set designed by Celeste Burlina in a disused retail space, the show also features Genevieve Belleveau, Steven Harwick, Vika Kirchenbauer and more, touching on the poignancy of exploring physical contact after the pandemic. As noted in the press release: “the body once again appears as a major site on which the hazards of intimacy between sovereignty and vulnerability is negotiated.”**

How Todd Haynes captured The Velvet Underground’s transgressive impact

One of The Velvet Underground’s greatest advantages—the band’s discordant drone and jarring lyrics—was also its greatest liability.

Transgressive spirituality

Even though I once wrote it off as a cute dress-up day for kids, I have come to believe Halloween is the most subversive major holiday in our country and activists and spiritual people should take note of its particular brand of magic. Halloween is a mass outpouring of transgressive costumery, alter-egos and anti-social behavior.

New Damon Albarn Single ‘Royal Morning Blue’ is a Beautiful Snapshot

It’s been a difficult nineteen months (at least we think it’s been nineteen months – it all went a bit hazy around the time of the last surge). And music has been one of the few bright spots, helpfully assisting us in either dancing away a bit of the worry, or on some days even giving us the fortitude to face down the effects of the COVID crisis with a sense of hope and determination.
