The show Creating the Myth is part of the program of Sofia Queer Forum 2012. The forum explores the idea of gender through the means of contemporary art as non-binary, flexible term, dependent on social, political, cultural and medical factors.
This particular show presents a wide spectrum of authors and genres dealing with subjects of gender and sexuality. It tracks down different aspects of creating the myth of binary gender and its singularity, as well as social and economic tensions created on the basis of contradictions and inequality of gender. Some of the works merely claim the existence of difference.
