Programme »Digital Corporeality«

»Trois Milliardes de Pervers. La Grande Encyclopédie des Homosexualités« (Paris, 1973) is the title of a special issue of the magazine Recherches that was associated with the La Borde psychiatric clinic. Collectively signed by authors including Gilles Deleuze, Michel Foucault, Jean Genet and Félix Guattari, the publication presented a complex montage of theoretical statements, pictures, interviews and caricatures. From the foreword: »The homosexuals speak in the name of all – in the name of the silent majority – and call the production of desire in all its forms into question.« The reading is based on the anonymous fragments and pictures from this publication, transferring them to a new visual and acoustic level. Besides the work of Deleuze and Guattari – especially their concept of desiring machines – the point of departure for this performative rereading is the political and psychiatric context of institutional psychotherapy.
