An Internationalist Gathering – Tag 3

Im Rahmen von “¡PROTAGONISTAS! Resistance Feminisms Revolution”
Im Rahmen von “Beyond Equality: Feminisms Reclaiming Life. An Internationalist Gathering”


11:00–12:30 / HAU1
Conversation: “Breaking Barriers: On Queer and Gender Dissidence beyond borders”
Rub(en) Solís Mecalco, Maria Galindo, Zethu Matebeni
Host/ Moderation: Camila Nobrega
Languages: Spanish and English with Spanish and English simultaneous translation

In most parts of the world queer and sex-gender dissidences are still marginalized or prosecuted; at the same time queerness tends to be instrumentalized rhetorically in diversity mainstreaming policies or even foreign politics. The panel focuses on diverse concepts of gender dissidences in different transnational contexts – indigenous, decolonial and other – to question the binary concepts of gender and sexualities as well as their appropriations of neoliberal queer feminisms.

12:45–14:15 / HAU1 & HAU3

Limited capacity / Registration requested via tickets@hebbel-am-ufer.de
Meeting point for all workshop participants: HAU3 (Tempelhofer Ufer 10, 10963 Berlin)

*The Political Economy of race and reproduction
: Bafta Sarbo, Bahar Oghalai
With: Miriam Nobre, Iida Käyhkö, Dalia Gebrial, Luci Cavallero
Languages: English, Spanish

Feminist and antiracist movements have always been dealing with questions of class and capitalism at their core. Within the last years many concepts have emerged that address the conceptualization of the relationship between race, gender, and class. In this workshop we will discuss the question of how systems of racism, patriarchy and capitalism interconnect and how social movements address this interconnectedness.

*Feminism Unchained: Embracing Abolition and Challenging Carceral Feminism
: Elif Sarican
With: Becka Hudson, Nazan Üstündağ
Language: English

Join us for a workshop to explore feminism beyond the confines of the liberal carceral paradigm, that demands more policing and juridical state punishment to confront gendered violence. Because sexual assaults are connected to other forms of structural (state) violence, like racial profiling, police violence, border regimes, wars or economic dispossession. What would a feminist abolitionist position look like? We will explore the potential of abolitionist feminism in transforming society and examine the interconnections between gender liberation, the critic of police violence and militarism.

*Alternative Feminist Investigation Media Strategies
Host: Camila Nobrega
With: Barbara Marcel, Andrea Dip, Kurdish women’s newspaper, JIN TV, Lara Bitar
Language: English

Traditional media systems are terrains rooted in cis-hetero patriarchal perspectives of narrating the world. Nevertheless, feminist collective and intersectional perspectives are building new autonomous arrangements of storytelling, investigative journalism, and community-based documentation. This workshop will give the floor to people and collectives who will share their strategies, struggles and paths to build new meanings of journalism from different local and cross-border contexts.

*Emotions in Movements

Host: medico International e.V.
With: Verónica Gago, Kate Sheese and Débora Medeiros
Languages: English

What role play affects and emotions in mass mobilization? Under which conditions does their politicization become emancipatory, and under what conditions are they authoritarian? Mass protests ignite with affective impulses: The shared experience of violence and oppression becomes a key promoter for emancipatory movements when suffering and fear are turning into rage. Organizing rage over structural violence repeatedly finds expression in queer-feminist and decolonial mass protests on the one hand. On the other hand, emotions are regressively transformed into resentment and hatred against marginalized groups under right-wing populists and authoritarianism. This workshop aims to understand the role of emotions in mass mobilization from a feminist-activist and socio-psychological perspective.

*Feminized labor at the intersection of class, migration and the state of late hyper-capitalism
: Margarita Tsomou
Guests: Delal Atmaca, Liad Hussein Kantorowicz, Maternal Fantasies
Languages: English/German

Feminized labor is systematically undervalued, underpaid and often not even seen as labor: this applies to all the spheres of social reproduction labor that was assigned to the feminized as their “natural obligation” to do so. Parting from (migrant) domestic work, the medical care sector, sex work and maternal labor, we will discuss the conditions of feminized labor in current capitalism and ideas for a socialization of care work.



15:30–17:30 / HAU1
Conversation: “Feminists against Neoliberal Authoritarianism: How to fight back gendered violence?” (co-organized by IRGAC-RLS)

Guests: Evren Savci, Anielle Franco, Luci Cavallero, Ewa Majewska
Host/Moderation: Firoozeh Farvardin
Languages: Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, English

Anti-feminist politics have become the cornerstone of current neoliberal authoritarian regimes across the globe. Neoliberalism, though in different fashions, has gone hand in hand with the rise of authoritarian rule, far-right movements and religious conservatism, e.g. in Turkey, Argentina, Brazil or Poland. In these contexts the conjunction between neoliberalism and authoritarianism has intensified gender violence in various forms, for example as anti-abortion laws, anti-trans politics, state femicide or gendered impoverishment. The debate discusses the key strategies of each context for resisting various forms of exploitation of our bodies and of the extraction of vital resources. How do we reclaim life, despite increased neoliberal repressions?

18:00–20:00 / HAU1

Conversation: “Feminism and the New Right: Resisting “divide and rule”– on the continuities of antiracism and feminism in migrant struggles in Europe

Guests: Simone Dede Ayivi, Encarnación Gutiérrez-Rodríguez, Sabine Hark, Jamille da Silva
Host/Moderation: Bafta Sarbo 
Languages: English and German with English and German simultaneous translation

Anti-migration rhetoric fueled by a renewed nationalism has been a defining issue for the new right in Germany. Within the past decade right wing movements raised concern for women’s safety as a key argument against migrants coming to Germany. These movements have been directly or indirectly supported by a conservative branch of feminism that positions migrant men as a threat to German and migrant women. How can feminist and antiracist movements resist this divide and rule?
