How many times have you seen the world end today? Do you want to watch it together?

A-pop-calpyse now! presents a screening and discussion exploring the gayness of fantasies of the world’s end. Exploring the queer and dramatic desire for the abolition of self and society, the screening asks what solace and resistance can be found in surrendering to the inevitability of our destruction. Taking its cues from DJ sets, YouTube wormholes and the 24-hour news cycle, A-pop-calypse now! edits and re-edits the detritus of capitalist culture to try to create another ending.

Echoing the humorous curatorial practices of Ridykeulous, as well as their DIY appropriation of culture as anti-capitalist intervention, the screening celebrates selective destruction as a form of survival, while also critiquing queer complicity in histories of colonialism and climate crisis. As much as we might wish it to be otherwise, no one escapes the apocalypse unscathed…
