    June 25, 1984: Michel Foucault Dies of AIDs

    On June 25th, 1984, French intellectual Michel Foucault died from health complications arising from an AIDs infection. Days after his death, Le Monde reported:

    Michel Foucault entered the clinic for maladies of the nervous system at the hospital of the Salpétriére in Paris, 9 June 1984, for further examinations made necessary by the manifestation of neurological events complicating a septicemic state. These examinations revealed the existence of several areas of cerebral suppuration. Antibiotic treatment, at first, had a favorable effect; last week, a remission permitted M. Michel Foucault to take notice of the first reviews following on the publication of his last books. An abrupt worsening dashed all hope of effective therapy, and death came 25 June at 1:15 p.m.

    Foucault’s death prompted partner Daniel Defert to establish AIDES, France’s first coalition to combat the disease. Both during his life and since his death Foucault has remained one of the most well-known openly-queer intellectuals, an even greater achievement considering the status of homosexuality during his career in the early 1960s. Today, Foucault is remembered today for his major works Discipline & Punish, The History of Sexuality, and Madness & Civilization, as well as other contributions to the fields of philosophy, philology, history, and sociology. Selections of his work can be found in such places as foucault.info and michel-foucault.com. He would be 88.

    Miss Kilman and She Were Terrible Together
    curated by Matt Morris

     
    May 10 – June 6, 2014
    Opening reception: Saturday, May 10, 7–11 pm

    Shinsuke Aso, Luis Miguel Bendaña, Poy Born, Alex da Corte, Dana DeGiulio, Hunter Foster, Jesse Harrod, Richard Hawkins, Matthew Landry, Tony Luensman, Miller/Shellabarger, Ulrike Müller, William J. O’Brien, BD Pack, Daisy Palma, Eric Ruschman, Ryan Shubert, Amy Sillman, Joan Snyder

    Claims:
    1. The epistemologies typically attributed to an analysis of the material conditions of an artwork’s production are almost always available through a phenomenological encounter with the art object itself.

    2. Black is back.

    3. There is a space beyond explicit depictions of same-sex coital encounters where eroticism and desire take other forms. Overturn anything and you’re bound to find sex.

    4. For a period of time in the late 1950s, Agnes Martin and Ellsworth Kelly’s studios adjoined one another, and on most mornings they breakfasted together. This matters.

    5. Coalitions across lines of difference are preferable to the eradication of nuanced subject positions.

    6. Codes, closets, and separatism continue to be useful both as historical points of reference, but also as formal moves of constraint to play against the limits of painting.

    This exhibition marks the completion of the first iteration of ‘Painting Queer,’ an undergraduate multi-level studio course Matt Morris taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

    A small publication will be released in conjunction with the exhibition featuring contributions by David Getsy, Richard Hawkins, Matt Morris, Ulrike Müller, Lisi Raskin, and others.

    godindrag:

    Please reblog and share this with talented Gay and Queer Boys!

    Its submission time again at The Holy Male Magazine! 

    That’s right, its time to get your spiritual sexy selves back in motion and submit to Vol.3.

    The Holy Male is a Queerzine focused on encouraging the exploration of the spiritual, sexual and artistic lives of queer men past and present.

    We are looking for writers of poetry and prose, illustrators and designers, as well as boys with ideas for new ways of communicating their Holy selves with the world via print media.

    Some guidelines:

    Photography and Illustration: Because we print in black and white it’s appreciated if you send us your images in grey scale and at a resolution of 300dpi. The larger the image the better! No PDF’s please.

    Text: We love to receive all different types of written work like poetry, prose, predictions, journal entries, etc. Please send all text in a Word document and not in a PDF.

    Please keep in mind that the main focus of the magazine is that of a spiritual and metaphysical nature. We are aiming to include submissions that really shine a light on the intangible and sacred experiences of queer men while of course including the fleshy bits as well.

    We are excited about the first volume of 2014 and hope you guys are too! We can’t wait to see what you send us!

    All submissions are considered and if you aren’t selected for this issue your piece may find a home in a later volume.

    All contributors that are selected will be notified by email.

    Please send submissions to: hello@gregoryjsfoster.com
