INFESTATION (we cannot be repelled)

INFESTATION (we cannot be repelled)



…When they hatch, their new-born sticky wings move against each other, and it makes a sound almost like a wet kiss…


This year’s big Q.U.N.T. x MYÖS event is inspired by the queer nature of bugs, their extreme otherness, the transcendence of metamorphosis, and the collective ways of insects; their hives and nests. This transdisciplinary art party celebrates queer culture, and draws inspiration from club kids and drag artists.


We will have an ongoing costume- and makeup workshop for guests to transform into multi-species hybrids. You can try on new forms, let your creepy alter-ego crawl out. (Costumes are amazing; not obligatory!)


We aim to create a utopian dancefloor, a fun and caring safer space and a sense of community. As a guest at Q.U.N.T. x MYÖS parties, you are a co-creator.


The programme consists of audiovisual installations, sculpture, VJ sets, drag- and dj performances from local artists and the queer community including Abdiqane Dale & Catherine, Blushie, Dj Lovheim, Emmafended, Eliisa Ruusu, Elsa Tölli, Latvusto, Leik Silvestrini, VJ Moody Bitch, ohmydog, Mónica Celeste, Saara Bouzoubaa, Toukka, Unne Nirhamo, Vera Boicova, VituEmo, Xenia Ramm, Anna Pietilä, Kamila Śladowska, and Lennart Creutzburg.
