Feminist Media Production in Europe (funded by FWF 2008-2011)

Women have always played an important role in movements for social justice. Using media to transport their messages, to disrupt social orders and to spin novel social processes, feminists have long recognized the importance of self-managed media. In the past two decades an increasing number of women have taken the tools of media production into their hands; a vital social phenomenon that has gone largely undetected by members of the public, academia, and even sometimes the feminist movement.

Teaser Image: 

We http://www.vbkoe.org have recently engaged with the defining, positioning and constructing levels of the notion of a "women's movement." We problematized the non-naming of the first, feminist artist women's movements within history-writing.

In "Movement Politics. The Revolution Is Longer Than We Think," we further expand these analyses within an art historical, collective and activist context. We decipher their new potentials for feminist forms of action. We will carry that out through critical interview material and virtual conversations with the following participants:

Call for Entries: The Nigah QueerFest'10 in Dehli, India

Now in its fourth year, The Nigah Queer Fest’10 http://www.thequeerfest.com is Dehli‘s annual celebration of queerness. The festival this year brings back the curated film festival and our popular performance component along with a visual arts exhibition, workshops, parties and more.

On July 2nd, 2009, the Delhi High Court ruled that Sec 377 of the Indian Penal Code – an anti-sodomy statute – was unconstitutional and violated the rights and dignity of queer Indians. Since that day, many have said that queer people in India are on their way to becoming “free.”
