Amy Lien and Enzo Camacho, Notes on “The Angry Christ” (3), 2021
This ‘Mxnifesto’ was birthed by two women; one cis, one trans; both disturbed by living in a society that strangles with the fetishization of categorization. Opening discourse regarding heteronormativity, femininity, and queerness during the process of creating Notes on “The Angry Christ” (3) presented lines of inquiry that could not be ignored. We inquire by looking forward, what would our identities be, prior to the inscription of heteronormativity? ‘Mxnifesto’ acts as the seed and decree of our future practice. Through this we put our identities on the line, fusing them with the cyberspace to rewrite our culture so that our bodies exist outside of societies constraints.
