A Tribute to Goddess Bunny, Hollywood’s Disabled Trans Art Star

The Goddess Bunny Sandie Crisp 1985

Sandie Crisp, born Johnnie Baima on 13 January 1960 but known by her stage name the Goddess Bunny, died of Covid-19 on 27 January 27 2021.

As a child, the Goddess Bunny developed polio which caused severe deformity to her body and forced her into disability. But she never thought of herself as anything other than a goddess. This is how she presented herself to the world.

I first met her at Limbo Lounge, which was held on Thursday nights at Four Star in West Hollywood, circahellip;

Can’t Get You Out Of My Head: An Emotional History of the Mo

Adam Curtis’ new six-part marathon Can’t Get You Out Of My Head: An Emotional History of the Modern World opens in typically Curtis-ian style, with the 65-year-old softly spoken Brit announcing over footage of an eerily still, skyscraper-laden business district that “we are living through strange days”. His 2016 film Hypernormalization startshellip;

Dead Pigs, the Film Shining a Surreal Light on Life in Modern-Day Shanghai

Dead Pigs, 2018

In the spring of 2013, over 16,000 dead pigs were found floating in the Huangpu River in Shanghai. Quickly, this became a national – and then global – news story due to the bizarre nature of the incident – which was attributed to the growing reluctance of farmers to cover the rising cost of burying livestock. A few years later, this strange event served as the basis for director Cathy Yan’s first feature film, Dead Pigs (released on <ahellip;

XXI Girls by Chloé Le Drezen

What springs to mind when you think of beauty photography? Perhaps it’s the pages of a traditional glossy magazine where you might find, in the middle-back section, a string of posed portraits, detailing with peppy instruction some short-lived beauty trend or another. Such associations are deftly brushed away with a glance at London-based photographer Chloé Le Drezen’s intimate new zine XXI Girls; “a collection of 21hellip;

Berlin Pictures by Mark Steinmetz

Since the 1980s, American photographer Mark Steinmetz has been capturing people lost either in thought or in each other. While most of his career circles Athens, Georgia, where he lives and works, Steinmetz’s new photo book is set in Germany’s capital city. Titled Berlin Pictures, it features the same couples and young people of much of his practice, while also including intimate depictions of the city’s inhabitants who are down on their luck. In these portraits,hellip;

Seven Films to Watch for From Sundance

El Planeta 2021 film Sundance

A recent Instagram post from the documentary filmmaker Matt Wolf summed up the current state of attending prestige film festivals globally very well: “I’m alone in a virtual Chinese restaurant at a Dutch documentary film festival,” he wrote, captioning a screenshot of his avatar enjoying “dumplings” and “karaoke” at an empty table. Surreal attempts to replicate physical festival mingling aside, the transferral ofhellip;

Patricia Lockwood Has a Terrible Case of Internet Poisoning

Patricia_Lockwood_Author_Photo

For most of us, the last 12 months have been spent almost entirely online. It’s been a strange, amorphous existence, defined by doomscrolling, glitchy Zoom meetings, and pastel-coloured Instagram infographics. Locked down and with nothing else to do, we can’t look away – and as our screen times spiral, the lines between our real and online lives are blurring. “Are we in hell?” you may ask yourself, possibly several times a day. “Are we all just going to keep doing this until wehellip;
