Between 0 and 1: Remixing Gender, Technology, and Music, 2017, at MoMA PS1 as part of VW Sunday Sessions. © 2017 MoMA PS1, New York.

Organized with Bill Kouligas, and featuring Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Terre Thaemlitz, Honey Dijon and others, Between 0 and 1 is a series of performances, talks, screenings, and workshops that highlight and investigate the relationship between gender-nonconforming identities, technology, and electronic music. For three consecutive weekends, the series focuses on gender positions that reject and challenge a binary world view and looks at the historical role of electronic music in creating alternative spaces allowing for multitudes of identities, desires, and affects.

Artists Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Terre Thaemlitz share their pioneering works and views on the subject, and Honey Dijon, together with other members of New York’s nightlife scene, explores how this specific genre of music has been a vehicle for building communities of support and struggle. Between 0 and 1 probes the specific relationships between the algorithms of computer-generated music and the dissolution of binary gender constructs. Additional participants and schedule to be announced.

MoMA PS1’s acclaimed VW Sunday Sessions program welcomes visitors to experience art live and in real time. Embracing performance, music, dance, conversations, and film, the program vividly demonstrates how these art forms can push us to engage with our contemporary world in creative, illuminating ways. With an emphasis on artistic practices that blur and break traditional genre boundaries, the program supports and commissions new work, inviting artists, curators, and other cultural instigators to share their latest projects.

VW Sunday Sessions is organized by Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator; Alex Sloane, Curatorial Assistant; Taja Cheek, Curatorial Assistant; Rosey Selig-Addiss, Associate Producer; and Lucy Lie, Production Coordinator.
