Queer Living: Wanna get in my Drawers?

Saturday 20th – Sunday 21st May, 2023

Staying Cool | Various time slots - see below for details

Curated by Beth Steventon-Crinks

An immersive look at Queer living, chosen family and the stories that can be found on a bedside table, Beth invites you into the intimate space of a Queer bedroom.

Originally inspired by two Instagram accounts, @queernightstands and @queerbedsidetables, Wanna Get In My Drawers will fill an apartment at the Rotunda with bedside tables from Queer people across the city and asks you to consider what we want from Queer living in the future. The installation sets the scene for Juliet Bashore’s 1991 documentary The Battle of Tuntenhaus, a film about the residents of Tuntenhaus squat in East Berlin - known as “House of Queers” - and their fight against eviction by the West German police.

Each screening has a maximum capacity of 6 people. You have the option of booking single tickets (£5 per ticket) for a public event or as a group (£20) for a private event if you would prefer to attend with people you already know. Please note: the 11am, 2pm and 5pm slots on Sunday are public screenings and the 12.30pm and 3.30pm slots on Sunday and 8.00pm slot on Saturday are private.
