Sammanfattning

Jason E. Bowman orally presented his 2010 project Untitled (on a day unknown), commissioned by the Whitworth Art Gallery. Bowman worked with Out in the City, a group of LGBTQ senior citizen, to exhume then re-iterate a court case of a group of 29 men tried for homosexual crimes in 1936 in a small English town. From multiple archival resources - newspaper reports, criminal and court records etc. – the trial, its mediation within popular press and its meanings within a culture of inter-war years surveillance were re-traced. Via a performative reiteration of the trial, held in private, a series of pinhole photographs and a suite of drawings, conducted from memory by an official court artist were produced then co-exhibited. Jason will discuss the relations between the psychoanalytic culture of shame, the performativity of the legal body, and of scavenging amidst a historiography of surveillance as a method to ingeminate the queered archive as a site of trauma, violence and inspection.
