Eremus

The video attempts a redefinition of queerness through the lens of the “glitch” – here understood as a theoretical tool for analysing random and sudden interruptions or changes in systems of thought and action – while simultaneously a queer reading of the “Glitch Studies Mafinesto”. Queerness is being understood as a fatal error of the otherwise impermeable patriarchal algorithm; an error that can be both threatening and enchanting, both destructive and liberating.

Eremus is a queer multimedia artist, a dj and an architect. His work explores the potential dangers and/or possibilities of informational technologies, surveillance strategies and cyber-territories, as well as the relation between queer identity and digitally augmented realities. His videos and installations have been exhibited in DIY exhibitions and events, as well as in the Athens Digital Arts Festival (2016, 2017), the W:OW Festival (WOW.08), the KFFK (Short Film Festival Cologne) and the Athens Museum of Queer Arts, among others. He currently lives in Athens and studies at the Athens School of Fine Arts. Online Portfolio: https://eremurus-cloranthus.tumblr.com/
