12.10.2018, Maribor

SCREENING PROGRAM curated by Marina Gržinić and Tjaša Kancler

This program focuses on gender multiple borders and sex as politics. The program puts under question the regime of Whiteness, EU politics of segregation and expulsion, hidden histories. It as well talks about work: to be an artist, theoretician and sex worker. How much resistance against exploitation, racism, dispossession, and misery these positions can produce? What are the forms of these resistances? A militant theater, performance, documentary, a burlesque or an intervention on the street, in the classroom?

BSTP 2018 WORKSHOP

Prizren, Kosova

The goal of this workshop, which will be held in Prizren, Kosova, in the summer of 2018 is to orient current decolonial and postcolonial discourses towards post-socialist Balkan countries. The workshop will gather international scholars, activists and artists to discuss and analyze anti-capitalist politics, feminism, critical race theory and postcolonialism in the context of Kosova, specifically, and eastern Europe, generally. Hence, the workshop will draw attention to places traditionally deemed unphilosophical as sites of theoretical and practical resistance.

Aftermaths and Transformations: October Revolution 1917 Revisited

Posted · Add Comment

23.,24., and 25. October 2017
conference, exhibition, film seminar, workshop

The Russian Revolution of 1917, which began with the February Revolution and culminated in October with “ten days that shock the world” established the first workers’ socialist state in history and is therefore the preeminent event of the 20th century. Moreover, the two other “events” of the 20th century, namely the two world wars, were connected to carnage and death with no emancipatory impulse.

When thinking of freedom and change, the October Revolution palpably echoes with two other historically momentous revolutions: the Haitian Revolution, the anti-slavery and anti-colonial insurrection of 1791-1804, and the French Revolution of 1789, the ideological, political and social upheaval in the political history of France and Europe by those who were not recognized as the new labor force or as agents of change.

How do we work towards transforming the ways of articulating critique today? Which tools and tactics can we engage to shift the terms of our conversations? How do we form the alliances which we need now? How can we practice solidarity to dismantle the hegemonic identity politics and the current logics of production?

¿Radicalmente feministas?

Posted · Add Comment

Comunicado del grupo transfeminista antirracista de Barcelona

El libro “Jornades Radical-ment feministes”, publicado en relación a las Jornadas de junio de 2016 y, que recopila las memorias del encuentro con la intención de continuar “escribiendo la historia feminista”, es una de las muchas violencias que diariamente experienciamos las personas racializadas y migrantes en el contexto local. Todavía hoy, después de décadas de luchas y críticas al feminismo blanco occidental, nos encontramos en la misma situación que ha sido cuestionada, donde la historia se escribe borrándonos. En la historia colonial, parte del sistema capitalista y heteropatriarcal, está inscrita la ceguera europea, a pesar del origen geográfico e intelectual del concepto “raza” en Europa. ¿Por qué el racismo y los procesos de racialización que organizan la segregación europea se silencian? ¿Qué es lo que las feministas blancas occidentales tendrían que cuestionarse si realmente nos escucharan?[…]
