09. April, 2019 featuring: Djibril Sall and Erkan Affan
“Discrimination in Hybrid Spaces”
· ABOUT ·
Clubs, theatres and museums, do they have a tendency of serving particular people over others? Prioritising certain narratives and centring specific identities at the expense of others? Perpetuating the experiences of discrimination and marginality that are extant in the world?
Join Djibril and Erkan as they talk about the complexities of being queer, femme and of colour within the context of Berlin’s most well known hybrid spaces.
