As the Arts program coordinator for TranScreen and together with trans* artist Willemijn da Campo, I curated the exhibition “Lost & Found: Transgender Image-Making” at the International Gay and Lesbian Archive and Information Centre (IHLIA) in the Amsterdam Main Public Library. From April – July 2013 it was open to the public of the library, some 5,000 people a day. “Lost & Found” explored the politics of producing and archiving transgender images through visual art, video installations, social media campaigns, workshops and debates with Dutch and international artists.
During the festival a panel discussion was held with seven of the participating artists about what it means for them to produce trans art today (including Fernanda Milan, Madsen Minx and Simon Croft). Through partnership with the Gender Graduate Program of Utrecht University, Susan Stryker (University of Arizona) gave a Public Lecture “We Who Are Sexy: The Whirlwind Tour of Transgender Images in Cinema” on the archive of trans cinema.
