HEIMAT

Queerdos

Performance

Heimat is a place of safety and belonging, but also a time of  limited solidarity and folk fabulation. It is national ideology  camouflaged as Heimatliebe; there to exclude and divide but also to  unite and conquer. These tensions change meaning depending on which side  of the border one finds themselves.
In Queerdos Heimat, we stop being the object of your polemics  and radicalization. Narratives of displacement are construed as five  short performative acts and an epilogue that subvert the patriotic gaze  and viewed as constitutive of new queer migrant subjectivities.
We are rudimentary and dirty and improvisational, poor and lo-fi; we are  the exiled bodies stripped naked, swimming in mud, trying to build  homes on quicksand. Our bodies are exoticized, eroticized and  terrorized, and our existence is contested and met with biases. But  still, we keep going, pushing through land borders, gender spectrums and  sexual orientations.
We acknowledge the heterogeneous nature of our place of (be)longing. We  reject the influences of geopolitics, patriotism, and cultural  superiority in our existence; instead, we embrace queer desire,  fragility and unpredictability as our modus operandi.
