Feminist Discours

On Thursday, July 6 from 5 pm at schau.Räume an interim balance - an exchange within the festival Spectrum.
After taking stock in the fields of performing arts, music and visual arts, a successfully completed first Long Night of Women/Dolga noč žensk, KD Barba invites already for the third time to the exchange called "Zwischenbilanz" in Villach/Beljak. What is the state of the independent contemporary scene in Carinthia/Koroška? What role does the (in)visibility of women* and other marginalized groups play in this? What can or must we, the actors*, do? Which of these is the task of a cultural policy that looks to the future? Several collaborations and new events have already emerged from these joint reflections. The goal remains to help shape a sustainable and diverse change in the art landscape, and that is why we continue to be driven by the central idea: "What can a feminist alliance do for Carinthia/Koroška?"| KD Barba in Kooperation mit Festival Spectrum

Plan square with the "Architektur.Spiel.Raum.Kärnten"

Who owns the space? The pupils of the BG/BRG Villach Perau are investigating this question with inspections and interviews. Their own observations and experiences sensitise the young people's perception of public space and its use and make them curious about old patterns of behaviour and new developments. Layer by layer, the contents of the initially empty ‘plan square’ are made visible. More information only in German available here.
