Next meeting January 11th, 7-9pm, meeting hosted by Kajsa Dahlberg & Ginger Brooks Takahashi

This meeting will be hosted by artists Kajsa Dahlberg and Ginger Brooks Takahashi.

"We are interested in talking about Wimmin's spaces, queer intentional spaces, communal situations, and land trusts.
We are invested in radical gender expression with respect to
wimmin's separatism.
We would like to hear about people's experiences on wimmin's land,
queer land, experiments in collectivity, and starting land trusts."

This specific gathering hosted by Ginger and Kajsa will be gender separatist, meaning - open to persons that now or at some point in their lives have identified as women. This due to the topic of disucussion, hope you understand this.

December 16th, 7-9 pm - “Kamera läuft”

December 16th, 7-9 pm it’s time for this years last Nobody Puts Baby In A Corner gathering.

We will start off this gathering by screening “Kamera läuft”, a film project made by the group “kleines postfordistische Drama” (A small Post-Fordist Drama) in 2004 (30 min.).

The group was born out of a research and exhibition project about working and living conditions of cultural producers in Berlin. The project highlights the relationship between neo-liberal requirements and subjective desires for flexible and self-determined work and life conditions. The film starts off by posing the following questions:
What is your working life like?
What do you like about it and what should be changed?
When and why will it all become too much for you and what will you do then?
What is your idea of a “good life”?
Should cultural producers collaborate with other social movements to work on a new concept of organization?

Within this gathering we hope to discuss some of these questions and thereby return to some of the issues that have been addressed during the NPBIAC fall.

This occasion is open to 20 participants and you need to RSVP to to be able to join, please do so before Dec. 15th at noon.

Thanks to Marion von Osten and The Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College

Yesterday we got a supportive mail from Sisters of Jam

Sister of Jam is an artistic duo based in Sweden consisting of Moa and Mikaela Krestesen. Last year they got an assignment to make a Public Art work in the city Umeå.

They put up this sign “Nobody puts Baby in a corner” as a challenge for young women to take up space! Not to let the increased violence limit their freedom of movement in the public sphere. (in Swedish) (in Swedish)
