Event Details

Self portraits are and always have been an important tool for people to position themselves in this world and allow for new perspectives in relation to the body.

For queer folx self portraits also allow for an artistic expression that deconstruct patriarchal, cis-gender and normative views.

The question that any self portrait asks is. “How am I seeing myself and how can I make what I see into art?”

Together with artist and body acceptance activist Miah Flowers, we will try to view our own body through the artistic lens of the self-portrait.

It is not necessary to have prior experience in drawing, but rather let the creative process of transforming what you see into art give you new perspectives on your body.

Miah Flowers (they/them, no pronouns)

Intersectional Feminism, bodies, gender, their diversity and the beauty behind them are important themes within Miah Flower’s work. Within their journey to accept themself and figure out who they are, art was a tool to get to know their body, emotions and self. Their backround in Conservation Sciences and art history still influences their approach to art. By using historical techniques and story telling combined with queer, intersectional views of divers bodies, Miah tries to break and expand the culturally (western) learned viewing patterns.
