First, I thought about another system to present posters, maybe more playful. Then, Excitable Speech by Judith Butler. Starting from the idea that there is a sovereign vision of language, I recontextualized hate speech, here homophobic slurs, words and names given to me. With these posters, I reclaimed these words that I cut into syllables to create other words. It's about turning the stigma around. It could be new name calling, it could just be sounds, some kind of poetry or some kind of rumor.
