Queer theory as a critical tool against the very idea of identity in art.
Queerizing art is not wanting to promote queer art, if it exists or could exist, and even less wanting to aestheticize or “artistize” queer thought and practice. It is definitively renouncing any ontology as any paradigm, it is rejecting any claim to categorization, starting with the categories of pure art and even art. Queer does not proceed from the futile search for an additional identity, even a minority or "minor", but quite the contrary of an enterprise of deidentification, of deidentification, of criticism of any identity.
A book-montage, a sort of theoretical cut-up mixing the most diverse, the most heterogeneous, even the most heterogeneous references.
