Kein schöner Archiv: Words of Self-Defence

With Amani Abuzahra, Şeyda Kurt, Kein schöner Archiv (Michael Annoff & Nuray Demir)


German /  90 Min.

We’ve had enough! The “House of Self-Defence” looks back on the tradition of queer feminist and anti-racist resistance. What kind of knowledge can arm you against violence? FLINTA* and queer cis men, especially BPOC, are welcome to take part in workshops on self-defence techniques. Afterwards, the “House of Self-Defence” opens its doors. From 21:30, we end the evening at CAN with a DJ set by Neda Sanai aka Nedalot.

“Kein schöner Archiv” is a collective under the artistic direction of Michael Annoff and Nuray Demir. It archives the immaterial heritage of post-migrant society live and in public.
