In their keynote, titled INTER*me: VISCERAL PLEASURE, POLITICAL PROVOCATION, presenter Del LaGrace Volcano will introduce their work on the subject of BoDieS tHaT QweeR in an artistic performance by accompanying their series of photographs with a poem of the same name. The focus of this performance is to address and criticize the sociostructural as well as politically predetermined ways of thinking about and standards for queer bodies, and at the same time to issue a challenge to those who identify as queer by continuing to oppose the sociocultural claims. On a more subtle level, Del LaGrace also challenge the general public to accept and love these bodies. Thus, in their superbly provocative way, Del LaGrace invite us to engage with the issue of resistance regarding queer bodies.Volcano earned an MA in Photographic Studies at University of Derby, UK in 1992 after studying photography at the San Francisco Art Institute from 1979–81. They are considered to be one of the first instigators of queer LGBTQI culture.
