A celebration of historic queer artists’ exploration of gender efficiency by London and New York Metropolis-based photographer Austn Fischer. The undertaking attracts inspiration from Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore, who challenged gender norms via provocative self-portraits. Embracing the idea of “gender efficiency” by Judith Butler, “Jesters Gender Sport” highlights the concept that gender is a socially constructed efficiency formed by cultural expectations.
“By means of a vibrant tapestry of clothes, make-up, and physique language, members in Jesters Gender Sport craft intricate narratives of identification and liberation. The images playfully reveal how clothes influences societal perceptions, figuring out particular person personas. It encourages viewers to replicate on their assumptions and embrace the richness of human expression.”
