Abstract [en]

Wellbeing is a rare luxury. It can even be a fragile utopia for many so-called extreme users- people whose bodies, lives or interests are considered to fall out of the accepted norms. In its extreme, normative society ́s apprehensions, directed towards extreme users, can manifest as fears or phobias, for example, homophobia, transphobia or ableism.

Continuously confronted with marginalisation and discrimination, extreme users have to develop considerable ambition to ensure their own wellbeing. This ambition can take the form of exploration and creation of options through play. I am a privileged extreme user because I feel I canafford to play. As an artist, I play at performing alternative realities and possible utopias. As a designer, I play at creating my own space in the world through, what I call, subversive design. That is, the subversive modification or creation of objects, languages or systems that meet the needs of users neglected by dominant norms. This paper introduces the concept of subversive design and its significance for society, using examples of transmasculine and non-binary clothing strategies. In conclusion, it argues that society could become more sustainable through merging subversive design, inclusive design and participatory design to enable wellbeing and equality for everyone.

Abstract [en]

“Visible Monstrosity as Empowerment” asks, How can we own the transgender imaginary? Anthony Clair Wagner uses the figure of the monster in their art to reflect the stigmatization of monsterized others, specifically transsexuals. Wagner proposes that refusing hegemonic shame and boundaries through embracing the stigmatizing figure of the monster helps deconstruct the violent hegemonic imaginary. They call for monstrous visibility. In this artist statement Wagner explains the importance of the appropriation of the figure of the monster in their art as a tool for empowerment.
