Genderqueer artist  and CDS Artists Member John Moletress takes on the anti-LGBTQ policies of the current administration in 20-hour durational webcam and live performance TRIGGER WARNINGS AND VARIOUS ATTEMPTS.

Utilizing amateur webcam site Cam4 as a platform, John engages in online sex work to explore notions of queer pleasure, cyber ethics, dominance/submission, anonymity and artistic commerce while repeatedly reading Arthur Miller’s dramatization of the “witch hunts” of the House of Un-American Activities Committee under Sen. Joseph McCarthy, The Crucible, for the 20-hour duration.

TRIGGER WARNINGS will begin April 14 at 11:00pm and continue until April 15 at 7:00pm. This performance is presented by FUSEBOX FESTIVAL at The Museum of Human Achievement.
