Rosa Kwir x Whose Museum - an experimental queer archive from Malta

When: from the 17th of September until the 23rd of OctoberWhere: Whose Museum, Kristianstadsgatan 16
Whose Museum invites Rosa Kwir to share our walls and shelves, co-creating a space where alternative masculinities can be explored and new collective imaginaries can be created. Various events focusing on trans masculinities will take place during Rosa Kwir’s stay, such as poetry readings, brunches, spontaneous performances, zine and harness making workshops as well as times of rest.

Rosa Kwir is an archive and project space revolving around alternative notions of masculinity - bringing together stories of trans men, non-binary and LBQTI masculine of center people in Malta. It was initiated by artists Romeo Roxman Gatt & Charlie Cauchi in 2020. The archive is made up of donated objects, photography, audio-visual and written material. The exhibition and full event programme is organized by Whose Museum Associate and Roadie Aimé Dabbadie.

This is not a binary definition, rather one that challenges it in order to create new collective imaginaries for gender non conforming people experiencing and/or exploring alternative masculinities. In this space, masculinity is fluid and what one chooses it to be. We welcome people of all experiences and ask everyone attending to stay open to each other’s visions, expressions or experiences of masculinity.

DONATE TO THE “ROSA KWIR X WHOSE MUSEUM” COLLECTIONAs part of Whose Museum and Rosa Kwir’s collaboration, we invite all trans masculine, non binary and LBQTI masculine of center people* to donate objects that will become part of a collection that will live and travel between the two spaces in Malmö & Malta and be featured in a zine at the end of the collaboration period. It’s simple, you just need to come in, fill a form and leave your object with us :)

CODE OF CONDUCT No racism, sexism, ableism, fatphobia, transphobia or queerphobia, or any other form of discrimination. Don't assume pronouns!
ACCESSIBILITYTo enter the space from street level, there are three steps to cross. There are thresholds between rooms, and things stand in the way sometimes. The gender-neutral WC is not accessible for wheelchairs.
