Queer Moving Images and the Fragility and Temporality of Their Existence - Curatorial and artistic issues on moving images in a queer context. Queer Moving Images includes texts, talks, films, music and lectures, all of which concern issues surounding the moving image in a queer context.
Essays such as Amelie Björck's To come into being in a queer time and Louise Wolthers' Queering the family: images of reproduction both make links to the film Spermwhore, the creation of which is outlined in On Research In What's Most Private by Anna Linder.
The somewhat overlooked film Mai Zetterling's Stockholm is discussed in detail within. Ingrid Rydberg's article further contributes to the knowledge of the unique Swedish film scene in the 1970s by addressing films such as Damned Queers, The Woman in your life is you and Eva & Maria. You are invited to take part in the panel discussion on Susan Sontag's time in Sweden and to follow the experimental cinematic process of Joey Carducci.
The volume also includes moving images; the film Spermwhore and Barbara Hammer's lecture MAKING MOVIES OUT OF SEX AND LIFE (and making it all transparent).
