Terror is now
In April 2019, Gruppe was invited to stay at new residency and art center PAVILION NORDICO in Buenos Aires, Argentina, documenting the project and collaborating with the local creative scene. For this preview series of the material developed during the residency, Gruppe followed rogue drag collective Comparsa Drag on their crawl through the city. Subverting the language of Argentinian protest culture, the self-crowned queens roam the streets with political slogans, songs and posters. “HAY TERROR AHORA” being the dominant battle cry, they reclaim the nightlife of their hometown Buenos Aires as a space for queer love and rage. Photographer Dagurke captured the queens consolidating their nocturnal reign of terror.
