The Queer Art of Failure is about finding alternativesto conventional understandings of success in a heteronormative capitalist society to academic disciplines that confirm what is already known according to approved methods of knowing and to cultural criticism that claims to break new ground but cleaves to conventional archives Judith Halberstam proposes low theory as a mode of thinking and writing that operates at many different levels at once Low theory is derived from eccentric archives It runs the risk of not being taken seriously It entails a willingness to fail and to lose ones way to pursue difficult questions about complicity and to find counterintuitive forms of resistance Tacking back and forth between high theory and low theory high culture and low culture Halberstam looks for the unexpected and subversive in popular culture avant garde performance and queer art She pays particular attention to animated childrens films revealing narratives filled with unexpected encounters between the childish the transformative and the queer Failure sometimes offers more creative cooperative and surprising ways of being in the world even as it forces us to face the dark side of life love and libido
