How does the hegemonic way of viewing the body operate when looking at gender diverse people? Miquel Missé, sociologist and activist, and Sam Fernández, biologist and gender researcher, discuss present-day discourse, practices and policies affecting people who do not fit within the binary system of gender assignment.

Transitional States. Video Art Exhibition and lecture series

Hormones at the Crossroads of Art and Science

"Transitional States" is a video art exhibition and lecture series that focus on "bodies in transit", bodies that escape and defy categories and norms. The project also explores topics related to hormones and makes visible experiences that do not fit into the binary male-female system, thus drawing attention to the limits of what is considered ‘normal’ today.
