Emma Wolf-Haugh | Libidinous Memorial Flag
4th May, 7pm BST | Art/ Work Association
On Tuesday 4th of May at 7pm, we were thrilled to have artist Emma Wolf-Haugh host a session for us in collaboration with Art/ Work Association. Emma shared their WIP video work Libidinous Memorial Flag and discussed their recent research into public spaces of non-reproductive sexual pleasure. This session was organised by curator and A/WA member Daniel Bermingham, as part of a Liquid collaboration.
Emma has generously allowed us to share Libidinous Memorial Flag as a permanent fixture on our website.
Libidinous Memorial Flag is based on a zine of the same name, which you can download here.

Decolonise Our Genitals | Episode 1: Britain’s New Great Low26th March 2021, 11am EST / 4pm GMT
Due to absolutely no public demand, Roisin and Daniel have finally been given a radio show. Decolonise Our Genitals is a trashy bi-monthly chat show about desire, British men and cultural imperialism in sex, presented by Montez Press and Liquid.
Our first episode is an attempt to introduce the core ideas of the series, reflect on a new low for Britain, and talk absolute filth. We also rate British men 1-10, from Nigel Farage to Phil Lynott.
In future episodes, we will be joined by guests digging deeper into what decolonial practices might look like in sex and relationships. We are delighted that our first guest will be MacKenzie Wark, who’ll be joining us for our May show.
This episode’s track is ‘Violet Gibson’ by Lisa O’Neill.
