Trangender and Intersexuality

This theme explores what is entailed in the fixing of gender identities in bodily form, whether these are forms of cultural violence, how surgical and hormonal expertise works in relation to self and social life, legal status, body dysporia and various forms of bodily reconstruction. The recent exhibition Queer and Trans Art-iculations by Gabrielle le Roux and Zanele Muholi at the Wits Art Museum sparked interest in this area.
