The Platform Presents Iran vs USA

Researcher Nathanja van den Heuvel and Gabriel Fontana held a conversation on Nov. 29 about their joint research on sports and queer pedagogies. This was followed by a live screening of the World Cup soccer match Iran vs USA. The Platform mediated and disrupted the screening via a live augmented visual overlay. The soccer commentary was replaced by a DJ set of two DJs playing against each other, and back-to-back: Moody Mehran, an Iranian DJ, and Claire Clover from the U.S. The event was non-profit, and 2 euros from each ticket went to the NL-based, women-led Iranian organization Jina Collective.
