Bored by mainstream media? Zines, Feminismus und DIY Kultur
mit Ricarda Drüeke, Dana Krusche, Vina Yun und Elke Zobl
Moderation: Stefanie Grünangerl
Begrüßung: Ingrid Paus-Hasebrink | Universität Salzburg, Dekanin der Kultur- und Gesellschaftswissenschaftlichen Fakultät
Feminist_innen haben die Bedeutung alternativer Medien- und Kulturproduktion schon lange erkannt, um Inhalte zu transportieren, soziale Ordnungen aufzubrechen und neue gesellschaftliche Prozesse anzutreiben. Insbesondere in der Zine- und DIY-Kultur hat sich in den letzten Jahren ein vibrierendes Netzwerk gebildet: neu gegründete Magazine, Grrrl und Queer Zines, Ladyfeste, Platten-Labels, Radical Crafting sowie diverse andere Projekte zeugen davon, dass es den daran Beteiligten nicht reicht, Kritik am bestehenden Medien- und Kulturangebot zu üben, sondern sie stattdessen im Sinne des Do-It-Yourself selbst aktiv werden und queer-feministische Alternativen schaffen.

Grassroots feminist show VIOLET: Disability and art in Eastern Europe

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sqJRheg4Zw

The latest episode of VIOLET is with the artist Gabrielė Gervickaitė, currently based in Vilnius. Gabrielė is well-known in Lithuania for careful juxtaposition of medical and industrial materials in her work. Her collages make limbs in orthopaedic devices look like radio towers and by using electrical tape she constructs androgynous torsos. Such strategies have established Gabrielė as one of the most interesting artists of her generation in Lithuania. More on Gabrielė - http://gabrielegervickaite.com/
