LTTR in person!

LTTR (K8 Hardy, Emily Roysdon, Ulrike Mueller, and Ginger Brooks Takahashi) is a radically vibrant feminist art collective. Post-punk and gender-queer, their exuberant activist practice includes international curatorial projects, community-based workshops, screenings, and an annual self-published arts journal-enthusing a growing community of artists and thinkers. Tonight’s program exemplifies LTTR’s ethos and their smart curatorial style: Marble Mouth Au Revoir (2006, Curtis Carman, 2006); Dead in the Desert (2006, Marriage [Math Bass & James Pei-Mun Tsang]); To Pee in Public Places (2001-2006, Itziar Okariz); The Last Day of November (2001, Bill Basquin); 21 Years (2005, Moyra Davey); East River Park (1991, Zoe Leonard and Nancy Brooks Brody); Social Movement (2005, Emily Roysdon); Me (2005-2006, Chris Spinelli); Munchausen (2006, Susanne Oberbeck); Lez Side Story (2006, Hedia Maron and Faye Driscoll); Spektro De’l Tempo (2005, Ilona Berger); Who Do You Think You Are (1997, Lovett/Codagnone); Love/Torture (2005, Ulrike Mueller); and fat/soft/normal/skinny (2005, Dafne Boggeri). 1991-2006, various directors, Italy/Spain/UK/US, ca. 75 min, various formats.
