“What it is to be trans in this world is often discussed in terms of bodies – trans bodies are a problem, to be fixed or they’re a secret, to be concealed. The trans body is isolated and marked out as fundamentally alien from the society in which it exists. It is singled out for scrutiny. In Cecilia Golding and Nick Finegan’s new film, The Swimming Club, which follows participants at TAGS (‘Trans and Gender non-conforming Swimmers’ Group) in London, one of the trans swimmers in the club explains how the scrutiny of trans people’s bodies and their meaning quickly transforms into the language of oppression: “they say that we’re unnatural, that we’re perverted that we’re not genuine people”.

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.
