Eva Egermann: Hold me tight! (with texts by Ianina Ilitcheva)

24/7 2020 6 pm
Central Garden, Donaukanal

On July 24, we host an evening with Eva Egermann and her guests reading, watching films and discussing queer disability (sub-)cultures, possible futures of care, and biopolitical management in times of crises.

Eva Egermann reads some further passages of Ianina Ilticheva’s work. Romily Alice Walden’s utopian video work Notes from the Underlands (originally commissioned by HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Berlin, for the project Manifestos for Queer Futures) runs in a loop. Crip Trans activist Em Gruber gives a lecture reflecting on pandemics, ideologies of social eugenism and the right to self-determination.

Poetic verses by the author Ianina Ilitcheva frame the walls and doors of Central Garden – as well as the horizon of our conversations.

Free admission!
