Please join us for a screening of short moving image works by Liz Rosenfeld and Marc Siegel dealing with questions of queer desire, the politics of passing, and cruising for sex. For two decades, artist Liz Rosenfeld has been inspired by past, present and future histories of cruising and how this experience is carried through and between bodies of queerness. Liz will be sharing short moving image works, including the first experimental video about cruising that Liz* made at age 20. Writer, artist and film historian, Marc Siegel will also share some of his work on queer cruising, with a conversation between Liz , Marc and the audience to conclude the evening.

Marc Siegel is a curator, writer, and professor of Film Studies at Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz. His main research interests are primarily in the field of queer studies and experimental film. His book A Gossip of Images is coming soon to Duke University Press.
