Gabriel Fontana

To Be Determined

Gabriel Fontana (France, Gemini Water Rooster) 
A Rotterdam-based social designer and educator.  By understanding the body as a learning tool, his design practice investigates how our bodies perform, internalize, and reproduce social norms. He proposes ways for this to be unlearned through queer pedagogies and alternative team sport games that imagine and introduce new value systems. His work is applied both in daily social settings (primary schools, sport clubs) and academic contexts (KU Leuven) as well as in cultural institutions (W130 Gallery, Amsterdam; Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht).
