Beyond Beyond are cross-disciplinary artist duo Giulia Astesani and Roshana Rubin-Mayhew. Their work explores queering as a methodology to revision and action beyond the current state of things.
Often collaborative in approach, they propagate a multiplicity of otherwise perspectives that seek to destabilise the hegemony that has formed the foundations of our present mainstream thinking and cultures. From art installations to workshops, lecturing to queer parties, Beyond Beyond’s work could be understood as polymorphous platforms of desire, or portals, to other possible worlds and ways of being.
Giulia and Roshana first began working together in 2014 as GJRL, an international four-strong art collective with Lalu Delbracio & Jessie McLaughlin. Their individual practices stretch back further, to before they met during their Master’s at University of the Arts, London.
Beyond Beyond teach on the International BA Photography Course at European Institute of Design (IED), Milan Italy.
