Welcome to the BioNet / Your body infiltrated / Your microbe compromised / Your red blood micro-computes / Your red blood codes DNA / Your red blood is your current currency / Shove me with your bloody money / G for Giblings / Giblings for giving / Giving for forgiving / Shake me hands / Hold me tight / I want your wet data / Make me a red pill / Swallow the red pill / SenSexual AutoInduction / Your pleasure our business / You and I don’t live the same viral reality.

On the occasion of STWST and’s release of the 2021 edition of Bloody Giblings, designed by Shu Lea Cheang, we propose a BLOODY SUNDAY trans-(wo)manifestation. Emerging from a year of lockdown, we step out to greet each other, attempting an awkward embrace, a bodily contact. Are we fine? Are you fine? We gather as a community, a collective body seeking recovery and regeneration. Bringing together Linz’ local communities including housing collectives, environmental activists, self-help and mutual-help groups who focus on art and on social affairs, migrant women and sex workers, we recount strategies and tactics on managing viral conditions during state or self-imposed isolation. With bloody food, bloody drinks, bloody infusion, transfusions and confusion on a bloody Sunday afternoon, we reboot our corporeal selves, settling in with antibodies among us.
