Pan's Bill Kouligas announces event series investigating gender identity and music

Featuring Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Honey Dijon, Terre Thaemlitz, and others, the series will run over three weekends in February in MoMAPS1, New York

Bill Kouligas of Pan records has organised a series of performances, talks, screenings and workshops set to investigate the relationship between gender nonconforming identities, technology and electronic music. Featuring Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Honey Dijon, Terre Thaemlitz aka DJ Sprinkles, Juliana Huxtable, Elysia Crampton, Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz, Tavia Nyong'o, Code Liberation, Venus X and Dreamcrusher, the sessions are called Between 0 and 1: Remixing Gender, Technology, and Music will focus “on gender positions that reject and challenge a binary world view” whilst looking at the historical role that electronic music has played in creating alternative spaces that allow for a variety of identities.

Part one will take place on 12 February and focus on communities within New York City’s nightlife. Part two is on 19 February and will be based around a live performance of “Cantos I-IV” from Terre Thaemlitz’s multimedia sound work Soulnessless. Part three on 26 February will explore the ongoing relationship between electronic music and the dissolution of established gender constructs over the generations.

These events will take place on Sundays at the Museum Of Modern Art, New York. More information can be found via their website.
