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 performance series welcomes visitors to experience and participate in live art. Since its founding in 1976, MoMA PS1 has offered audiences one of the most extensive programs of live performance in the world. VW Sunday Sessions highlights artists responding to contemporary social and political issues through a wide variety of creative and critical lenses. Encompassing performance, music, dance, conversation, and film, the series develops and presents projects by established and emerging artists, scholars, activists, and other cultural instigators. With a focus on artists that blur and break traditional genre boundaries, VW Sunday Sessions embraces the communities in New York City that create and sustain artistic practice.

Since 2012, VW Sunday Sessions has presented a commissioning program resulting in new work by Trajal Harrell, Mårten Spångberg, Anne Imhof, Tobias Madison and Matthew Lutz Kinoy, Hannah Black, and Colin Self. Additionally, the VW Dome Artist Residency offers a platform for creative development and experimentation for artists at all stages of the creative process.
