Crip Magazine #4 – The Vienna Edition

Crip Magazine is dedicated to anti-hegemonial experiences and forms of knowledge in the context of illness and disability. Based on the reclamation of the term “Crip” used in the field of disability studies and activism, the magazine overturns ableist and hyper-productive framing of bodies within capitalism. Crip Magazine functions as a collective platform bringing together different cultural producers, writers and artists.

The repoliticization of mental health and diverse artistic perspectives are addressed in the current issue, produced in collaboration with Kunsthalle Wien. The magazine picks up topics such as never ending fatigue, utopian time travel, works in progress, cruel optimism, crash landings, bruises, diversity and accessibility, patriarchy and psyche, Zen gardens, sticky dis-identifications, spring and the fragility of desires.

Crip Magazine #4 – The Vienna Edition brings together collages, poetry, photos, drawings, Instagram-postings, interviews and facsimiles. Many contributions were created specifically for this issue, others are reformulations and adaptions. In ‘exceptional situations’ like the current one, the contributions remind us of the need for artistic intervention. They evoke a future that stands for equality and solidarity.

Presentation by Eva Egermann and Anne Faucheret (Kunsthalle Wien). In the attendance of some of the contributors.

Short film program

With artistic and activist contributions by and with: Amanda Baggs, Lorenza Böttner, Crutches & Spice, Theresia Degener, Disability Mad Pride Parade, Em Gruber, Feel Tank Chicago, Julischka Stengele (world premiere of the video Bodies of Water), Two Pigs under One Umbrella and Romily Alice Walden.

The films are dealing with unusual communication and resistance, a holiday of the politically depressed, pain and pleasure, or refer to barricades instead of barriers, the risk factor and biopolitics in times of crisis. The videos were created in the pandemic year 2020, some are directly linked to Crip Magazine content. Many contributions also reach back into the recent past of social movements around illness and disability and are time documents of resistance.
