Museum as Hub: Carlos Motta: We Who Feel Differently is a multipart project that explores the idea of sexual and gender “difference” after four decades of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Intersex, Queer, and Questioning politics. The exhibition draws from Motta’s database documentary that consists of a website, publication, online journal, and discursive events. Conceived as a platform to engage critical issues of contemporary queer culture, We Who Feel Differently features a video installation based on fifty interviews with LGBTIQQ academics, activists, artists, politicians, researchers, and radicals from Colombia, Norway, South Korea, and the United States, exploring notions of equality, difference, citizenship, and democracy. The interviews address the history and development of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Intersex, Queer, and Questioning movements and experiences, proposing the notion of difference as a profound strategy for alliance building, solidarity, and self-determination.
