AGO/CONTACT International Photography Talks: Casa Susanna, On Photography and the Play of Gender



The Casa Susanna snapshots included in Outsiders: American Photography and Film, 1950s — 1980s offer a compelling look at the lives of a group of cross-dressers at their weekend gathering place between the mid-1950s and early 1960s. Artist Zackary Drucker, philosopher and life-long cross dresser Miqqi Alicia Gilbert, and cultural historian Elspeth Brown consider the Casa Susanna photos, the relationship of image making to the formation of queer, trans and cross-dressing communities from the 1950s to today.
