Busca por parceiros no Memorial do Holocausto de Eisenman

Valentina Rozas Krause

Resumo


Fotos de perfis de sites de namoro gay de homens jovens posando junto a objetos do Memorial do Holocausto em Berlim são objeto de exposição de arte no Museu Judaico de Nova York e em um blog online. Este artigo revela o significado dessas imagens neste site particular, em um esforço para entender por que esses homens escolheram retratar-se no Memorial do Holocausto a fim de encontrar parceiros por meio digital em sites de namoro gay. Em três seções consecutivas, o artigo afirma que, por um lado, a conversão do Memorial do Holocausto em um cenário de busca por parceiros é facilitada por um design que – por conduzir a uma compreensão autônoma e abstrata – permite e convida uma ressignificação constante a partir das práticas cotidianas. E, por outro lado, postula que as imagens exibidas no Museu Judaico podem ser interpretadas como um memorial performativo que reinscreve sexualidade e gênero em narrativas do Holocausto.
