Manufacturing Chronicles

8. February 2023 19:00

The exhibition Tuntenhaus Forellenhof 1990 recounts the brief summer of Gay Communism in Berlin’s Tuntenhaus. Now the show is in its final stages, and its curator Bastian Krondorfer invites us to a reflection on its production processes: together we discuss the search for traces, re-inscination and its disruptions, perspectives from below, and the question of innocence.

With Bini Adamczak (theorist and activist/Berlin), Eva Dertschei (artist exhibition graphic designer/studio tiD Vienna), Bri Schlögel (scenographer and stage designer/Reichenow), Birgit Bosold (curator/board member of SMU Berlin), Bastian Krondorfer (curator/Berlin)
