If the Museo de las locas is a visual block in the construction of trans* memory, this action – their live show – takes the sonic witness of those present at the installation of El Palomar to transfer the echoes of their struggle for queer empowerment into a danceable format. This listening session intertwines fragments of the sonic legacy of a group of artists who, in their complexity, comprise an ongoing multi-faceted investigation and imbricates them with the musical language designed and composed for the occasion as a musical performance. The Museo de las locas adopts trans* memory to languages that break away from the aspirations of the museum as a classical architecture of the symbolic ordering of the world. Like the madwomen, it is not afraid to occupy the space in improvised, raucous ways, throwing a party, celebrating against the tide and bringing together community. The Museo de las locas (live) is a danceable sound map for a possible revolution of trans* consciousness.
This event is presented as part of Song for Many Movements, an ephemeral experiment in which the ground floor of MACBA becomes a stage for encounters, conversations and shared listening. Curated by María Berríos and Sabel Gavaldon.
