Impure experiments with publishing techniques and formats mixing art with jewellery, performance with fashion and photography with literature, with the result that the publication becomes a fusion of all these disciplines. Its core is a collection of un/wearable pieces created for people who dare to be different, who understand that social conventions are a game and that we can subvert the rules or even invent our own ones.

In the first chapter of the book Gender Matters we generated a network of empowerment and visibility of women and queer people working in the art world, including curators, visual artists, performers, poets, photographers, actresses, theatre and film directors, artivists, researchers and writers.

Photo-Actions the second chapter contains a fusion of images with texts which range from poetry to aphorism and satire. To revindicate and to make diversity visible, Anna Maria has chosen to collaborate with bi / pansexual, queer, non-gendered, transgendered and gender fluid people who form part of her affective network. And she specifically made the pieces thinking of the person who would wear them.

The Photo-Actions with their mix of performance, photography and text, play with gender and how it is represented in the fashion world, challenging roles and stereotypes about sex / gender. The pieces and their mise-en-scène use kitsch and camp (value systems associated with a queer sensitivity) to subvert the heteronormative values of mainstream culture.

Impure is a bilingual publication in English and Spanish with 160 pages in colour, size 25 cm x 20 cm.

It includes TEXTS by Jose Ramón Alarcón, Aldo Alcota, Irene Ballester Buigues, Graham Bell, Johanna Caplliure, Jesús García Cívico, Kepa Karmona, Ángela Molina, Carmen Navarrete, Marisol Salanova, Rosa Sanchis, Paula Valero.

PHOTOGRAPHS by Patricia Aragón, Asún Bonilla, Fabrizio Campisi, Toni Cordero, Fermín Jiménez Landa, Vic Labadie, David Macías Navarro, Serena Rinaudo, Joaquín Ruiz Espinosa, Alejandro Sanchéz, Carlos Valencia, Ana Wika.

And the PARTICIPATION and COLABORATION of (amongst others) Gerard Apeluz, Abel Báguena, Carla Barrier, Elena Battaglia Grunder, Brenda Bengala, Ángela Bermudez/La Diva, Maria Bla, Yui Black, Carolina Boluda, Atthis Bond, Isabel Caballero, Carola Castañón, Leila Cesana, Jose Ciria, Dharma Correfoc, Dr. Sieur Demodé le Parapluie, Marga DiCi, Ana Donat, Liz Dust, Valeri Esteban, Lupe Frígols, Miguel García Cano, José Luis Giner Borrull, chris guarrillerx, Vanessa Hernández Gracia, Josey Heyes, Bea Higón, Yoshihiro Hino, ideadestroyingmuros, William James, Jacobo Julio Roger, Diana Junyent Torres, Rampova Kabaret, Joel Maldonado, Diego March Ávila, Juli Mekànika, Maria Pagán, Eva Pez, Jennifer Picken, Mary Read, Ximo Rochera, Elena Smirnova, Mery Sut, perla tempesta, Isaac Torres, Alejandra Transtattoo, Lili Tras Tras, Sergio Velasco and Mad Vicious. Editor: Anna Maria Staiano. Graphic designer: Judith Álvarez García.

How we will use your contribution

The book is a project of love and madness, it has been edited without resources or grants, thanks to the altruistic help of a fantastic group of contributors.
Since it is an ambitious project, a very colourful book, lavishly illustrated with photographs, publication costs are high and we need your help and this crowdfunding campaign to print, distribute and publicise it.

The contributions will be used to publish the book in two formats (the paperback and the deluxe, hard-back, limited collectors edition) and for the promotion of the project through presentations.

If the campaign is successful, with the additional money we would like to expand the print run of Impure and produce photographs and supplementary material for travelling exhibitions and events.

Rewards

You will have the chance to get exclusive offers and rewards at special prices only available for patrons during the crowdfunding campaign:

Sets of Postcards of the sci-fi photo-novel Transexpace, of the Foto-Actions and of the Pussy Alliance Medallions.

Signed and collectors copies of Impure and my limited edition of handmade necklaces Pussy Alliance Medallion (photo below);

and you can be the star in a special photo shoot with Toni Cordero and Anna Maria Staiano (photo below);

or live a unique experience in the The Erreria (House of Bent) house-museum (photo below).

Furthermore, all patrons will get an Acknowledgement on the Erreria (House of Bent) website. If for personal reasons you don´t want to be acknowledged on our website, or you prefer to use a pseudonym, let us know and we will comply with your wish

Timetable

We plan to send books and rewards in September 2016.

It is also scheduled to hold a presentation and delivery of books in Barcelona and Valencia in September / October. London presentation date to be announced.

Shipping

The patrons who purchase various rewards will receive them all in the same delivery to save postage.

Rewards may also be collected in person at the project presentations and collection points in Barcelona and Valencia and possibly later on in London, to avoid shipping charges. We will be in contact to inform you of the collection points and dates of presentations when the crowdfunding ends and we have all the events confirmed. If you want to collect any of the rewards at the presentations please select the option without shipping.

Thank you for making this possible!
