Saturday 25 November

Café, anti-racist exhibitions and mini-film festival

Come enjoy a whole afternoon of continuous programming in the Klinker. In our café you can have a drink and view several mini-exhibitions, read something at our anti-racist zine table, do some anti-racist myth busting, view short videos and more.

Meanwhile in our film screening space we will be showing 3 excellent documentaries on anti-imperialism, refugee rights and unpacking white privilege:

  • Wit is ook een kleur (2016), directed by Sunny Bergman, 51 minutes (Dutch). The documentary boldly unravels the question why white people react angry, wronged or uncomfortable now that the obviousness of the dominant white gaze is increasingly being questioned.
  • Lesvos: Beautiful Prison (2017), directed by Laura Heinig, 55 minutes (Eng). The documentary engages with the stories and experiences of five women on the Greek island Lesvos. It eloquently shows the brutalities of the European border regime, while at the same time the ways in which people, individually and collectively, try to carve out moments and spaces of humanity, autonomy dignity and freedom.
  • Concerning Violence (2014), directed by Göran Olsson, 89 minutes (Eng). Based on the Frantz Fanon’s homonym essay, the movie deals with African independence movements challenging white supremacy and the regime of oppression instituted by European governments.

Anti-racism info evening

From fighting Islamophobia to decolonizing academia, from resisting fascism to defending refugee rights: anti-racism is a movement that knows many forms. On this info evening we invite speakers from a wide range of organizations that do anti-racist work. Introductions of these different projects will be followed by conversations about how these projects connect, how we can strengthen each others work and what we must avoid to resist being divided.

This event will be in English. Speakers so far:

  • So introduces us to the work of We Reclaim our Pride, an intersectional group of queers working against racism, commercialism and homonationalism at LGBTQIA+ events.
  • Ramon from the International Socialism speaks about the nature of fascism.
  • Denise speaks about art as activism from her perspective as a black, African-Irish, queer woman performing rap and spoken word poetry
  • For the project Asylum University, Kolar, a geography PhD candidate who became a mother one year ago speaks about learning to act from her gut and without fear.
  • Olivier speaks about Willkommenskultur fatigue on the German side of our borderland.
