The event series social poetics* activism is a deepening and continuation of the topics addressed in the exhibition social poetics*. As part of the event, queer activism, the connection to art and strategies to take action against discriminatory structures will be discussed. The boundary between intimacy and the public, breaking taboos and what possible futures might look like are also being negotiated.
The event also offers those involved in the project the opportunity to present their work at the intersection between activism and art, to meet new allies and to get into conversation.
