The Bad Vibes Club: The Rise of The Awkward Turtle

4 June 2016

The Bad Vibes Club: The Rise of The Awkward Turtle

CCA is happy to present a public event with The Bad Vibes Club. Join Andrea Francke and Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau on Saturday 4th June between 4:30pm and 6:30pm for an afternoon of presentations and discussion exploring awkwardness. From a micro-history of the awkward turtle hand gesture, to the potential of awkwardness as a queered mode of politics, we’ll try to understand the particular qualities of awkwardness as a feeling and a relation, and what its productive possibilities might be.

The Bad Vibes Club is a collaborative research project into the productive possibilities of negative states. It produces original research, and hosts lectures and reading groups at galleries and institutions.

Listen here to a recording of the event.
