We Found Love in a Hopeless Place

Event hosted by: Visual Aids
Visual AIDS presents We Found Love in a Hopeless Place as part of BROADCAST, a free summer screening series featuring contemporary artists’ responses to the ongoing AIDS crisis through the medium of video.
Short videos about how HIV can trouble close relationships while also creating complex and necessary connections to social movements.
From protesting to kissing, cruising, or swallowing a bunch of pills, people living with HIV develop new relationships with ourselves and others after diagnosis. Navigating joy, anger, and acceptance, what emerges is a tension we call intimacy. We Found Love in a Hopeless Place, named after the iconic Rihanna song, frames intimacy as a public and political matter explored through a range of responses, including radicality, boredom, and keen pop sensibilities. In the videos we see how HIV can trouble close relationships while also creating complex and necessary connections to social movements. These videos are about interactions with oneself, community, and the state upon diagnosis and beyond.
