3 – 3.30 pm
Welcome by Christiane Ehrharter

Input by Susanne Hamscha (founding member of the Crip Magazine comittee): Between Art and Activism: The Cultural Visualization of Disability

Partly by pronounced, partly by nuanced critique, artists and activists themselves take control of how they are talked about and raise questions about participation and self-determination for discussion. This talk will discuss how the intersection of art and activism opens up options for action to make the diversity of lives with disabilities conscious and visible by way of using best practice examples from the cultural field and from the field of activist movements (Disability Visibility Project, #CripTheVote, Sick Festival, Disability Arts Online, No Limits Festival).

3.30 – 5 pm

Networking-workshop hosted by Michaela Moser
The event is designed for cultural workers with disabilities, neurodivergence and chronic diseases, as well as all interested parties.

The agendas of the magazine project will be taken over and continued by a new founding committee. We invite you to the founding of Crip Magazine in the sculpture garden of Belvedere 21. The focus lies on the collective development and perspectives for the continuation of the magazine.

Crip Magazine is a structure of solidarity and an anti-repression tool, a traveling space for exchange and fermentation of discourses, materialized as an artistic magazine project.
