“Disability is properly speaking an aesthetic value, which is to say, it participates in a system of knowledge that provides materials for and increases critical consciousness about the way that some bodies make other bodies feel” (Tobin Siebers, Disability Aesthetics, 2010, 20).  

Queerness and disability have long intersected, from the medicalization of queerness, institutionalization, and the HIV/AIDS epidemic to contemporary address, such as the ongoing suppression of Trans* healthcare rights.  Queer/crip refusals of closure offer radical alternatives to assimilationist or reformist politics, reflected in alternative modes of making and exhibition. We invite artists, researchers, and curators to share works, from contemporary and historical perspectives, exploring art objects, practices, and/or institutions that produce, perform, and/or promote radical queer/crip art and methodologies. 

Topics can include: 

Queer(ing)/Crip(ping) spaces + times/futurities  
Art + curatorial transgressions, activism, barriers 
Orientations or affects 
De/colonizing the body 
Historical + contemporary queer/crip aesthetics 
Queer/Crip Ecologies 
Wreckage, refuse, debris, parts
Keywords: disability, queer, cripping, activism, aesthetics
