Transmigration


 

Let a hundred sexes bloom!

The Xenofeminist Manifesto: A Politics for Alienation, Laboria Cuboniks, 2018
Statement
Like many others who share similar identities, the way I move through this world defies boundaries and confounds binaries. From being assigned female at birth to changing my gender marker to male, and from being born a Singaporean to becoming an immigrant American, I want to challenge the concept of identity as a discrete category and embrace the shifting, hybrid nature of lived experience.

Charting the movement of bodies and identities across borders and boundaries, Transmigration moves beyond essentialism to embrace hybridity as a metaphor for understanding contemporary identities and how they are defined and deconstructed.
