The companion book to the exhibition Trans*_Homo: Of lesbian trans* gays and other normalities (August – November 2012 at the Schwules Museum Berlin) designs an interplay of art, activism and scientific knowledge.
Trans*_Homo discusses commonalities and differences, in- and exclusions among trans*, gays, and lesbians, and examines lived realities in the areas of language, law and medicine.
Artistic works and supplementary texts speak from trans* perspectives. These works throw the scrutiny back onto science and society, as well as onto gay-lesbian spaces and onto the question of whether, and how, trans* wants to position itself in these spaces.
