cafém – getting to know feminism #7

audre lorde

During the cafém in March we will deal with the topic of Black Feminism and the Black Feminism Movement in Germany.
As always there will be brunch, a bookstall, the kid’s corner as well as warm and cold drinks at the bar.

In the back room there will be choosen texts, audios and poetry that will prompt discussion on several topics.
At 5 pm we want to watch the movie „Audre Lorde – The Berlin years 1984 – 1992“. The documentary focuses on Audre Lorde’s relation to the German Black Diaspora, her literary as well as political influence, and is a unique visual document about the times the author spent in Germany. The film is also for coming generations a valuable historical document of German history, which tells about the development of an Afro-German movement and the origins of the anti-racist movement before and after the German reunification. The film relates the beginnings of these political debates and therefore facilitates a historical analysis and an understanding of present debates on identity and racism in Germany.

cafém – getting to know feminism #6

The cafém in February will deal with Black Feminism, Black women in Germany and the book Daima, which was publishes last year.

Daima: On Witnesses, Images and Visions.
A Book Presentation

“without a vision, every social change feels like death.”
Audre Lorde

In global contexts, Black women have historically been rendered invisible both within (white dominated) feminist movements and within (male dominated) Black power movements. In Germany, this situation has been no different and cultural representations in this country continue to be dominated by the ideals of „white“ and „male.“ Just the same, Black women in Germany have continuously organised and represented themselves – the photobook „Daima“ is simply one further contribution to a long tradition of cultural productions and creative work by Black women in Germany.

In this interactive event, mother, author, editor and activist Sharon Dodua Otoo will talk about her motivation for creating the English language book series „Witnessed“ with a special focus on the latest publication „Daima. Images of Women of Colour in Germany“ by Nzitu Mawakha.

Presentation in English & German. All welcome.

Also we will have well known things like: book corners, reading circle, children play area, discussions, games, brunch (pls bring some food),..

Date: 16th of February
Where: kosmotique
When: 2 – 8pm
Input: 4pm
