What is post-Trance? Literally meaning “after trance” and not in the spiritual enlightenment kind of way, but rather referring to the style of music called Trance.

A queer eye view from the booth

Type in the term “Queer Art” and the first result is almost always in the form of a question. A fairly new development in the lexicon of modern art theory, the term “Queer” was only really introduced to the glossary of terms in the 1980’s – even though it now refers to art made before […]
