TRANSFORM! - festival of contemporary queer arts - returns for its 3rd edition with an ever more festive, contemporary, nomadic and militant spirit. 

After Villa Alliv in November 2015, the Deviation in April 2017, meeting from 4 to 12 September in 3 locations in Marseille: Videodrome 2, KLAP House for Dance, Montevideo art center.

Cette année encore la programmation de TRANSFORM! dit le dynamisme, les combats, les luttes et les engagements sociétaux du collectif IDEM en montrant la vitalité des cultures minorisées et invisibilisées face aux discriminations raciales, culturelles, de genres et d’orientation sexuelles, dont elles sont victimes.

To be a homo, dyke, trans *, intersex is to be in the minority estimated at more than 10% of the population.

Être racisé.e c’est être dans la minorité estimée à plus de 30% de la population.

Être femme* c’est être dans la majorité qu’on minorise.

To think of contemporary queer programming with these elements as a basis for reflection is to think TRANSFORM! in terms of deconstruction and decolonization.

Deconstruction of our structures of thought, by questioning them on their misogynistic, LGBTphobic, colonial and slave foundations.

Decolonialization of bodies, genres, memories, imaginations, arts and culture, rethinking our relationship to power and privileges to fight all forms of domination and invisibilisation.

So again this year, TRANSFORM! shows the plurality of what makes us, what constitutes us: our sexualities, our bodies, our desires, our plural identities, our multiple cultures.

Happy festival to all, 

The IDEM collective
