Flesh Histories

Flesh Histories: Crystals and Praxis by CAE

Designed as a touring package for wide distribution, Flesh Histories is curated by Tom Kalin for Drift Distribution. Recent years have witnessed a resurgence of work concerning the individual's ability to control that most intimate space within which we have no choice but to live: our bodies. Flesh Histories is an excitingly diverse program of short films and tapes which present the contested zone of bodies in all their fleshy splendor, tracing the contours and complex overlaps within identities as they are based in gender, class, race, and sexuality.
