The subDocumenta’s project is an evening with performances, exhibition, and presentation focus on queer feminist artists based in Vienna, occupying the AMOQA - Athens Museum of Queer Arts, on 07th of May.

The event is organized by Pêdra Costa, Ruby Sircar and AMOQA and it presents the multiplicities of techniques, languages and thoughts trough 31 artists. It is an ephemeral and transitional exhibition, a counterpoint to the durational event that is the Documenta 14.

The term “sub” from Latin means in this context under the Documenta, in an underground and queer way. According to Judith Butler, queer people do not reach the status of the human being for the Western societies, and expanding this quote we would say that immigrants in EU too.

Queer is a creative and subversive way to co-exist in the world, under the capitalist/colonial cis-tem. At last, what is the sub? The sub is the trick to subvert the status quo making part of it.
