LONDON/
/LondrA

 

written, designed, and performed

by Gabriele Uboldi 

Following the steps of controversial Italian activist Mario Mieli, queer artist Gabriele Uboldi embarks on a digital and site-specific journey to 1970s LGBTQ+ London. Reflecting on Mieli’s heritage and his own queer migration, Uboldi unearths the hidden sites of a history that is both personal and political, exploring notions of queerness and belonging.

Exploring the connection between space and memory, LONDON / LONDRA is an online project that can be accessed both remotely and in an immersive way through geo localisation technologies.

A "compelling", "exciting", "accessible" and "radical attempt at empathy"

"With the wealth of information I had acquired through archival research and interviews with living GLF activists, I wanted to ask: what does a queer city look like? And, through my own experience of moving to post-Brexit Britain, I wanted to raise other questions such as: who is welcome in this city? Who is being excluded?"
