Things Are Queer - Jonathan Weinberg

"The queer ofThings Are Queer is not a matter of specific sexual identities but of the world itself. The world is queer, because it is known only through representations that are fragmentary and in themselves queer. Their meanings are always relative, a matter of relationships and constructions. In contradiction to its title, the series seems to say the things themselves are not queer, rather what is queer is the certainty by which we label things normal and abnormal, decent and obscene, gay and straight."

I like his idea of making the series of photo have no ends, like a way of saying "the queer in this world never ends. So why do we always have to think and distinc and discriminate them?"
