December, 7pm CET,Acud Club Panelists: Max Folly, Ashus, Daddypuss Rex DJ set: Folly Ghost ABOUT In a world where discussions around ‘decolonising’ and ‘unlearning’ reign, this conversation will look at this in relation to desirability and attraction in a ‘cisnormative’ world (even in queer spaces). This conversation seeks to extend the discussion around gender and gender binaries and encourage people to explore their own ideas around desirability. It will try to find the balance between encouraging the reassessment of ideals and respecting boundaries. This discussion will aim to be an open and safe space, where pressing and even uncomfortable questions around gender, identity and attraction can be asked and answered as objectively as possible. Questions to pose will be: Are we doing enough to challenge who we find desirable, after all preferences aren’t created in a vacuum free of ideals that are influenced by societal norms? How can spaces be created where different kinds of bodies feel welcome, free and attractive? How can people be challenged to take ownership of who they are attracted to without overstepping their boundaries? This conversation will also be framed around the dancefloor and club scene due to No Shade’s positioning in music, especially in the LGBTQ+ space. Additionally especially in supposedly liberal, critical spaces like Berlin there are myriad of parties that claim to be spaces of body positivity and/or freedom of sexual expression, but it is disputable as to whether these values are reflected in the environment and amongst the partygoers. The conversation will use the dancefloor as a means of exploring a wider societal topic. COLLECTIVE PRACTICES Over the course of several months, this series will examine “collective practice” as it relates to artistic creation, cultural organizing and social coexistence. Together with all participating players, we, a team of cultural producers, look forward to researching, discussing, understanding and practicing collectivity across four thematic explorations (#NARRATIVES / #KNOWLEDGES / #CARE / #RESISTANCE). More info at: COLLECTIVE PRACTICES is a project of ACUD MACHT NEU and is funded by Hauptstadtkulturfonds.
