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 The film is also for coming generations a valuable historical document of German history, which tells about the development of an Afro-German movement and the origins of the anti-racist movement before and after the German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 in January

For our café in January we invited director Magda Wystub, who will present her movie „Yes we are“. The documentary (2011) is the first to deal with lesbian conceptions of life, homophobia and resistance in Poland. Following this, Magda Wystub will report on the developments of the queer scene since 2011, as well as on the current fights of the protagonists.
The reading group „Aufstand aus der Küche„, by Silvia Federici will also have its first session. In the run-up to the movie interested people may come together and discuss about what they have read or read together. We will provide excerpts of the texts. Otherwise we recommend to buy or borrow the book.

→ The original language version of the documentary is in Polish and there will be either German or English subtitles or even subtitles in both languages. The decision will be made together with the audience shortly before the movie starts.
