Jan Hoek, fashion designer Duran Lantink and trans sex worker organisation SistaazHood present ‘Sistaaz of the Castle’, published by Art Paper Editions, an ongoing project about the colorful looks and lives of transgender sex workers that roam the streets of Cape Town, South Africa.

Most of the girls are homeless, living under a bridge near Cape Town’s castle. The Sistaaz are eager activists, proud to be trans, proud to be a sex worker, and even prouder of their stunning sense of style. And they want it to be acknowledged.

A series of photographs and a fashion collection based on the girls’ appearance and their ability to turn whatever they find into the most exuberant outfits was created. This has already resulted in a fashion show at Amsterdam Fashion Week (a show in Cape Town in still on the wish list) and a photo exhibition in Foam Amsterdam.

Mirar a la cartografía desde las disidencias sexuales posibilita un proceso de resignificación que habla en otros términos, trata otros territorios y rompe con los ideales hegemónicos de lo cartográfico. Este eje atraviesa el trabajo de lxs tres autorxs participantes, para encontrar un potencial que permita cuestionar, remover e imaginar otras vivencias posibles. Esto significa dar cuenta de lo subjetivo y activar herramientas que denotan una voluntad política. Y es que tratar otro tipo de experiencias que se alejan de la norma requiere otras formas de hacer que posibilitan nuevos imaginarios pero no olvidan las relaciones de poder y las desigualdades que los inscriben. En definitiva, demuestran que podemos hacer cartografías en nuestros propios términos. Los trabajos de Kyle Lasky (Lesbian Bedrooms II), nucbeade (Lesboanimitas) y Lucas Larochelle ( están construidos con argamasa de memoria colectiva, experiencias personales, deseos entrelazados y relatos ficcionados. Hacen referencia a las diferentes formas de vivir y habitar el espacio a través de testimonios, fotografías u otros registros que cuentan historias; historias que hablan desde la memoria, la intimidad y la ficción, desde lugares de resistencia y de vulnerabilidad.

Looking at cartographies through sexual dissidence facilitates a process of resignification that speaks in other terms, deals with other territories and breaks away from the hegemonic ideals of cartography. These are maps that do not intend to be utilitarian objects, but rather an exchange of perspectives and experiences around other ways of thinking of and occupying space. Being critical of hegemonic cartography entails questioning the forms of representation that are characterised by fixed categories of analysis. A non-representational cartography is interested in that which is not palpable; the invisible, the affectionate, the performative, the virtual and the fictional. These cartographies are born out of a curiosity to generate other spaces and other norms while creating and looking for other codes and other ways of narrating. The cartographies by Kyle Lasky, Lucas LaRochelle and nucbeade included here are cemented with collective memory, personal experiences, intertwined desires, and fictionalised accounts. They refer to the different ways of living and inhabiting space through testimonies, photographs or other records that tell stories; stories that speak from memory, intimacy, fiction, places of resistance and vulnerability.

Revista Balam is an independent contemporary photography magazine based in Buenos Aires, Argentina that shows images of emerging and established artists from Latin America and the rest of the world. It speaks issues related to minorities and dissent through its open call. Presenting here its latest issue N6 under the theme of MESTIZX. In this issue we come to expose the collective call of more than 100 authors from different parts of the world who explore, through their eyes, the advance of stocks in various political, social and cultural contexts of a world dominated and repressed by the heterosexual norm. We metaphorically reinvent the concept of MESTIZX from taking our bodies as a field and witness to the struggle and visibility of our decisions and ways of being, acting and loving. Photographers who cross borders to build and deconstruct the future panorama of photography.


Viral Bodies – NXS issue #3

34x12 cm
Staple Binding

NXS issue #3 Viral Bodies investigates the changing concepts of gender and identity norms in the digital space, and open the discussion to many possible speculations and to their real world implications. Kicking off the issue with a starting piece by Reba Maybury, over 20 fellow contributors explore social conventions, share intimate moments and experiences of pain, love, hate and fear. They delve into authenticity in the non-human sphere, they code accidental bigotry on the internet. Science fiction writer Alan Dean Foster blurs the lines of reality, transmitting what is real and what not in a dystopian society. Political art critic Penny Rafferty unravels the minds of tech giants while artistic researcher Addie Wagenknecht questions the diffusing lines between virtual technology and working bodies in reality.
