“I had this desire, this agenda to tell the stories of black lesbians in my country, to appropriate a space in the country’s visual history”. (Zanele Muholi)
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Lesbian Spring Meeting (LFT). It works out well that the event takes place in Berlin this year, and that the Schwules Museum* is currently exhibiting the work of Zanele Muholi: activist, photographer and one of the most internationally renowned lesbian artists. The Schwules Museum* would like to invite all LFT participants, as well as all its lady* friends to take advantage of this coincidence.
The two artists (photographers) Vera Hofmann and Sabine Schrunder from the artistic cooperation BENTEN CLAY have been invited to participate in an open discussion on the art of intervening politically with art. (Moderation Birgit Bosold and Elisaveta Dvorakk). The current exhibitions will be open to view beforehand, and afterwards sparkling wine and water will be open to drink – as usual.
Entrance: 4 EUR (suggested)
