Phantasm and Politics #9 – Agitation für unbillige Lösungen


Pop culture seems largely to have established its role of playing the background music for the dominant conditions. One of the exceptions to this trend in the German-speaking world is the Hamburg based Schwabinggrad Ballet. The group of activists from various backgrounds, whose happenings and musical performances have lent support to the Lampedusa refugees among others, will present its work for discussion.

18:00 / Buy Buy St. Pauli Film by Irene Bude, Steffen Jörg and Olaf Sobczak 
20:00 / Schwabinggrad Ballett (Ted Gaier, Sylvi Kretzschmar, Margarita Tsomou, Christoph Twickel) in conversation with Helmut Draxler, Michaela Melián and Sandy Kaltenborn

Gefördert aus Mitteln des Hauptstadtkulturfonds. Präsentiert im Kontext von House on Fire mit Unterstützung des Kulturprogramms der Europäischen Union.
