The HIV Howler: Transmitting Art and Activism is a limited edition art newspaper focusing on global grassroots HIV art and cultural production. Artists have and continue to play a fundamental role in shaping broader societal understandings of HIV and working within communities that are most impacted by the virus: queer and trans people, people who use drugs, sex workers, people of colour, and indigenous peoples. Together we reflect the immediacy and urgency of global HIV/AIDS dialogues as well as their historical continuities. The HIV Howler is a forum for dialogue, a demand for aesthetic self-determination, a response to tokenism, and a guide to navigating the vibrational ambiguities between policy, pathology, and community.

The HIV Howler: Transmitting Art and Activism es un periódico de edición limitada que se centra en el arte y la producción cultural del VIH a nivel mundial. Los artistas han desempeñado y continúan desempeñando un papel fundamental en la conformación de una comprensión social más amplia del VIH y en el trabajo en las comunidades más afectadas por el VIH: personas trans y queer, personas que consumen drogas, trabajadoras sexuales, personas de color y pueblos indígenas. Juntes reflejamos la inmediatez y la urgencia de los diálogos globales sobre el VIH / SIDA, así como sus continuidades históricas. El HIV Howler es un foro para el diálogo, una demanda de autodeterminación estética, una respuesta al tokenismo y una guía para navegar las ambigüedades vibratorias entre la política, la patología y la comunidad.

The HIV Howler: Transmitting Art and Activism est un journal d’art produit en édition limitée qui se concentre sur la production artistique et culturelle liée à l’épidémie mondiale du VIH. Cette tribune se veut à la fois un lieu de dialogue, un appel à l’autodétermination esthétique, une réponse aux mesures purement symboliques et un guide pour se frayer un chemin à travers les ambiguïtés vibratoires qui prennent forme entre la politique, la pathologie et la communauté. L’art et les artistes jouent un rôle fondamental dans la mise en œuvre d’une compréhension sociétale plus large du VIH, travaillant souvent à partir de l’expérience directe et au sein des communautés les plus touchées par le virus. En rassemblant les voix des artistes séropositifves, nous reflétons aussi bien l’impact immédiat et l’urgence des dialogues sur la pandémie du VIH/sida que leur continuité historique.
