Local political spaces and translocal solidarity – feminist and aesthetic interventions

18 October 2022, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

During the event we will be getting to know different forms of aesthetic-feminist action. Coming from a review of her feminist performances, the queer-feminist collective Dziewuchy Berlin will be contributing a critical discussion of claims of transnational solidarity in Europe – both in feminist movements as well as in society. Based on her own activist-artistic work of many years, Dziewuchy will be outlining aspects of equal transnational relations of solidarity. A French collective that is sticking feminist collages will be presenting their literary-documentary interventions in public spaces. We will be learning how they make power relations in these spaces become visible and thus negotiable. The Croatian artist Tina Keserovic will be reporting about her recent public performances in Zagreb. During these projects Tina has been working on builing connections between postcolonial and feminist prespectives to challenge local nationalism and its European connections. Moreover, Tina will be contributing experiences with building translocal networks that are crossing artistic and activistic fields. The political scientist Isabell Lorey will be commenting the different projects with refence to democratic theories. During the subsequent discussion we will be developing connections between the various aesthetic and activistic strategies that are locally and translocally working on and eking out new political spaces and possibilities of political articulation. By this we will be illuminating forms of equal representation and solidarity coming from aesthetic-feminist action.
