Cultural production has long been foundational in sharing information about HIV/AIDS while also being used to chart the public’s understanding and feelings around the ongoing epidemic. In this informal and interactive presentation, Theodore (ted) Kerr will share work he has made inspired by some early responses to HIV/AIDS in Germany while linking this to his larger practice of using and interrogating AIDS related culture in the US and Canada against canonization and the further marginalization of people living with HIV. Central to his work is the question: how can culture be mobilized to better serve people living with HIV? Canadian born Kerr is a Brooklyn based writer and organizer who was the programs manager at Visual AIDS and is currently at Union Theological Seminary researching Christian Ethics and HIV. Kerr was in residence at the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum for the exhibition,„AIDS: Based on a True Story“ curated by Vladimir Cajkovac.
