Alexandros Papadopoulos delivers a talk titled How to Use Gay Nazis in Job Interviews.
Alexandros Papadopoulos (Alexinos Piravlos) is a performer, visual artist and storyteller –
who works precariously in academic schools of performing arts. Over the last six years,
he has produced, solo and collaboratively — video-performances, lecture-performances,
site-specific happenings, sound-visual installations, short films and network-based
art—attacks. Based in Liverpool, grown up in Athens, lost in London and matured in
Manchester, Papadopoulos seeks for a multi-media art of exposure that would transcend
the prevailing experiences of fear, neo-puritanism and vulnerability — on and off screen.
How to Use Gay Nazis in Job Interviews
Based on an actual interview with a gay nazi, this delirious talk explores how social
media can stage a horny war against fear, hatred and uncertainty. Here comes a
provocative — both physically and intellectually — analysis of the relationship
between facebook, austerity-horror and queer desire – blending manic thoughts,
short clips and ritualistic acts of self-exposure.
