Building on the (un)learnings from SFPC: Sex Ed, a two-week intensive workshop series organized by School for Poetic Computation co-directors Melanie Hoff, Neta Bomani and Zainab Aliyu, this afternoon of workshops, talks, and activations invites visitors to re-imagine sex education as a pleasure and queer-centered pedagogical experiment, intentionally departing from the harmful social programming of traditional educational environments. Hosted by SFPC: Sex Ed co-organizers Melanie Hoff and Neta Bomani in collaboration with select guest teachers and participants, this event offers a safer platonic space in which to collectively reflect on issues related to sexuality, from consent and bodily autonomy to gestational labor and sex work, and how a sex education based on the principles of communal care can inform broader organizing practices behind liberation movement building. Sex Education: Refusing Defaults, Inviting Revelations is organized in the framework of SIREN (some poetics), a group exhibition at Amant and a poetics devoted to technologies of myth and mouth, earth and alarm, gender and language. Please note that this event includes references to nudity and explicit content of a sexual nature.
