Alicia Framis – Where did the future go?

For her film “Where did the future go?” Framis travelled to southern Utah in the United States in 2011.

Immigration to the UK

The big number in today’s story is the net migration of 250,000 people – the difference between the 593,000 people who came into the country in the year to June 2011 and the 343,000 who left the country to live abroad for more than 12 months. The government has pledged to bring that down to “tens of thousands”. Although the numbers of people coming into the country are up by about 2% on the previous year, the reason the balance has grown may be more due to the 1.2% drop in people emigrating. Alan Travis writes today that The figures… More

MUSEUM OF TRANSOLOGY

Last week my friend told me that there is an exhibition called “MUSEUM OF TRANSOLOGY” in LCF, so I went there immediately, thank god everything there is so helpful.   Here is an introduction of it: The UK’s trans communities are increasingly vibrant, visible and confident about sharing our stories. Trans people are coming out, finding each other and organizing Pride events, but no matter how bold and brave we are, we cannot reverse the erasure of ‘transcestry’ in museums. Historically, trans lives have been hidden for reasons of survival, by either ‘passing’ and therefore remaining closeted, or by only expressing our gender… More
