Rethinking marriage: a wedding with a chair in Kyiv

Source : 112 Ukraine

In the framework of Kyiv Biennale 2015 a very unusual "Queer-chapel" was opened
12:02, 7 November 2015


"Queer-chapel" operated in the House of clothes under the Kyiv Biennale 2015 "Kyiv School". The first mass wedding ceremony of anyone with anyone (LGBT unions, polygamous, incest couples, multiple, interspecific marriage with a pet or a chair, etc.") took place in the Ukraine's capital on the 1st of November.


One of the slogants of such an unusual event was "Let's mutate and get married!"

The organizator of the event Liubov Malikova in her interview with Cultprostir explained the idea of such a ceremony: "Our queer chapel is, on the one hand, an ironic look at the institution of marriage as such, and the procedure of the church wedding in its current form, in particular. On the other hand, it is impossible to ignore the obvious problem: many people like to marry, but this feature is actually a privilege. A great percent of the population in all its diversity is deprived of the opportunity to legitimize their relationship in the eyes of society, the state, and the church".
