Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to examine key elements of disorientation and queer temporality which will provide tools to understand queerness of selected contemporary artistic practices. It is concerned with the following questions: What constitutes the queerness of an artistic practice? How do contemporary queer artistic practices foreground the perspectives of queerness in their forms? What kind of disruptions they are causing in the conventional setting of artistic displays from a curatorial standpoint? Disorientations and queer temporalities, as queering the artwork, mean challenging dominant ideologies of the art object by repositioning them particularly in respect of heteronormative structures of time and space. For such an examination, Andrew Haigh’s film Weekend, GaniMeth’s writings, and Sharon Hayes’ Everything Else Has Failed! Don’t You Think It’s Time For Love? are read along with Sara Ahmed’s concept of disorientation and Jack Halberstam’s queer temporality. In doing so, the study explores the potential of artistic practices that allows to experience contemporary queerness. The method is to find queer deviations from existing structures by using the aforementioned concepts for the examination of the artworks, and in turn, explaining how the artistic practices broaden the same concepts by presenting affective experiences. By applying specific concepts from contemporary queer theory to analysis of the artistic practices, a more nuanced understanding of contemporary queerness is being discussed.
