con Ilenia Caleo, Jacopo Benassi Cruising Utopia


A book about the horizon of future queerness presented by Jacopo Benassi  

From the art of Andy Warhol to voguing of Kevin Aviance, from the poetry of Frank O’Hara and Elizabeth Bishop to the photography of Kevin McCarthy, Cruising Utopia crosses history and the stories of artists and writers that have left  a mark in the queer culture: the result is a manifest, a love letter to the past and the future, a call to reactivate the sparkles of queer worlds of the present and the political imaginary.
