Believe the Hype: 10 Years of Missy Magazine

Missy Magazine & HAU Hebbel am Ufer

Missy Magazine is turning ten. That means 10 years of political journalism, bringing together pop feminism, queer politics, and a critique of sexuality and everyday life. In 2008 the project seemed like a utopian endeavour, but today the magazine enjoys a loyal readership and feminist politics has become mainstream in many areas. Now this success will be celebrated by Missy Magazine, together with HAU Hebbel am Ufer and Diversity Arts Culture. Women of colour and their perspectives on contemporary feminism will be the focus of the programme. With lectures by the artist and activist Noah Sow and the sociologist Encarnación Gutiérrez Rodríguez. In addition there will be discussions with the organizations EOTO, Generation ADEFRA, International Women’s Space, MAIZ, RomaniPhen and LesMigraS and a performance by and with Arantxa Martinez. It will all culminate in a concert by the avant-garde pop musician and producer Ebony Bones. The anniversary celebration ends with a DJ night with Bianca Kruk, Black Cracker, Hengameh Yaghoobifarah and nedalot
