MEANWHILE (NZ) presents
An affinity of hammers ~ Aliyah Winter

With the increase of trans visibility in common discourse, anti-trans rhetoric has risen internationally. Across Australasia, anti-trans and conservative groups campaign against law reforms that would see greater civil and political rights for trans people. These conversations extend into policy, specifically the Marriage Amendments Bill which has seen same-sex marriage legalised, the removal of forced divorce provisions for transgender people and gender markers on birth certificates made optional. Winter’s work addresses the relationship between surveillance and violence, questioning the promise of “visibility” in an era of increasing anti-trans sentiment and civil rights breaches against trans people.

Opening Saturday 16 November, 4–6pm
Open daily 17-23 November, 12–3pm
Princes Park Battery, Hobart
