In response to neoliberal, extractivist and macho violence, a multitude of resistance movements have been forming in Latin America in the last few years. In doing so, militant protests against social injustice and land grabbing have connected with feminist movements against femicide and sexualised violence and highlight the political relationships between these different forms of violence. As a continuation of HAU's examination of feminist visions of a post-patriarchal society, the productions “How To Turn Stone” by Manuela Infante and “Resistance” by LASTESIS, which already had a workshop at HAU in March of 2020, will be presented. In addition, on the occasion of the recent publication of Rita Segato’s book “Contra-pedagogías de la crueldad” in German (“Wider die Grausamkeit”), a panel discussion will be held: Segato, professor of Anthropology, talks about “pedagogies of cruelty” and discusses alliances of resistance in Latin America and the possible lessons for Europe which can result from this with the performance collective LASTESIS, philosopher Eva von Redecker and journalist Carolin Wiedemann.
