José Esteban MuñozCruiser l'utopie, l'après et ailleurs de l'advenir queer
“Cruiser l’utopie is the result of more than ten years of research into the queer potentialities that José Esteban Muñoz observes in the artistic and literary practices of the 1960s and 1970s in New York and Los Angeles, practices that allow him to illuminate the design of a future far beyond the dominant reproductive heteronormativity.
This book describes a movement, a drifting advance between theory, philosophical approach, art criticism and personal narrative. The works cited, narrated, are mixed with family or individual accounts and more academic considerations. Queer theory as a study corresponds to a new way of researching and writing, a form of hybridity between philosophy and cultural studies. The critique is, as if by anticipation, contained in the artistic practice and the counter-normative everyday life whose narratives, both subjective and historical, suggest a queer advent, a place of transformation and liberation. The text, translated by Alice Wambergue, is accompanied here by a preface by Élisabeth Lebovici and a poem by Fred Moten.”
