WITH: INGRID STROBL, KATJA SABISCH AND ALVA DITTRICH
Wie hat sich die feministischen Bewegungen seit ihren Anfängen entwickelt? Welche Ziele haben sie erreicht? Welche wollen wir noch erreichen?
Wie radikal ist der queere Ansatz und welche Position nimmt er innerhalb feministischer Bewegungen ein?
WHEN: SATURDAY, 22. 11./ 15h/ KULTURBUNKER MüLHEIM/ GROßER SEMINARRAUM
If riot-grrl apparently died out, other than because those involved grew up and into ladies, when mainstream media tried to appropriate it, how come a radical political and sexual identity tag such as queer is used freely to market just about anything these days? We will look at the outset of the queer movement and the theory behind queer lifestyles and then focus on how queer images have infiltrated popular culture. Is it an achievement for an underground society to have some of its spokespeople gain major success both in academia and culture and how do we feel if a secret cult is advertised by formerly DIY artists like Gossip or filmmaker Jamie Babbit to the, more or less, general public. I hope to spark interesting discussions about the need to change cultural hegemony within generally uncritical formats (like The L-Word tried to do on TV) and the impossibility to remain radical and at the same time inclusive.
WHEN: FRIDAY, 21. 11./ 17h/ KULTURBUNKER MüLHEIM/ GROßER SEMINARRAUM
Recently we hear a lot about “feminism is sexy” and “feminism improves your life”, “Alphamädchen” and a “neue F-Klasse” populate the feuilletons. This gives reason to contemplate: What and how is and was “feminism” after all? Did or does the “feminism” exist, against which the new one distinguishes itself? What and who did the feminist mainstream perspective of the 60`s exclude, and keep on excluding again and again until today? Since then, which (academic) debates and achievements, which amplifications of perspective, which deconstructions and which kind of critique, emerging over and over again, have coined feminist debates since then, and what does (not) pour into current discussions? What is a really new feminism supposed to look like? These questions are supposed to be discussed by a ramble through the latest history of feminism.
WHEN: SATURDAY, 22. 11./ 16:30h/ KULTURBUNKER MüLHEIM/ GROßER SEMINARRAUM
"What is a woman looking for in a porn-cinema? And for whom does she cause more confusion with her pornographic interest: for men, for other women, for herself?" Silvia Henke
In this discussion I will highlight the history of pornography from various ways of
reception. The central point of reference is the censorship-debate of the 70`s
and 80`s in the US and Germany as well as the feminists' dilemmas within this
debate and generally regarding the phenomenon pornography. Afterwards I would
like to discuss some issues: is there a possibility for alternative pornography
or is all pornography rape? Is pornography always sexist?
What is pornography,after all? What kind of potential is in pornography? Are there victims of pornography, is it possible to help them, and how? How does alternative pornography look like? Am I a feminist "bad girl" when I watch pornography?
After the lecture, you have the possibility to join a tour to the women's sexshop -->"Lady's Toys" at Heumarkt, where the owner will guide you through her shop.
GESCHLECHTERVERHÄLTNISSE IN PUNK- UND HARDCORESCENE
WHEN: SATURDAY, 22. 11./ 18h/ KULTURBUNKER MüLHEIM/ HALL
WITH: YVONNE WOLZ
Obwohl sich „die“ D.I.Y. Punk-/ Hardcoreszene gerne Antisexismus auf die
Fahnen schreibt und viele Involvierte einen egalitären Anspruch haben,
sind die Rollen meist klar verteilt: In der Regel sind es Männer, die
auf der Bühne oder hinterm Mischpult stehen, die Platten rausbringen und
Die Aufgaben, die Frauen übernehmen, sind häufig kaum sichtbar und auch im Konzertraum werden sie oft marginalisiert.
In dem Vortrag soll es weniger um einen historischen und theoretischen Abriss von tradierten Geschlechterverhältnissen im Punk/ Hardcore gehen, sondern vielmehr um eine Betrachtung des Ist-Zustands in Europas Punk/ Hc-Szene. Es werden Erklärungsversuche geliefert, mögliche Gegenstrategien vorgestellt und anschließend diskutiert.
WANN: FRIDAY, 21. 11./ 15:45-18:00h/ KULTURBUNKER MüLHEIM/ GROßER SEMINARRAUM
WITH: SANDRA, JEANNETTE UND MARKUS
Was sind die Vorraussetzung unserer persönlichen Wahrnehmung von Geschlecht?
Mit unserem Workshop möchten wir erforschen, wie wir Geschlecht, Sexualität und Partnerschaft sehen und denken.
Wer Lust auf Selbsterfahrung und kreative Methoden hat, ist herzlich willkommen!
WHEN: SATURDAY, 22. 11./13-15h / KULTURBUNKER MüLHEIM/ GROßER SEMINARRAUM
WITH: TORSTEN AND BINE
Here we want to discuss, if the own gender and the identity which it is linked with, is political. Where are we confronted with sexism and homophobia and how do we handle it? Which effect has the gender rate to our every day live, which to our love affairs and relations, to our political work, which effect has it to our society and to the pop-culture? When are we sticking in old roll models and do also act like it?
In the moderated discussion we want to compile questions, themes and propositions, to work with in different teams. In some questions we have some theoretical input – if you need it – in other questions we are excited to deal with your experience, analysis and assessments. Afterwards we want to talk about your conclusions in the plenum again.
Generally we believe, “If you feel like a “lady”, be part of the ladyfest!”, but in some case, a certain topic or constellation, it may makes sense to divide working groups into gender.
