A Manifesto for the Night. Collective Nightwalk with Elke Krasny, Sophie Lingg, Claudia Lomoschitz

FLINT* groups parade through the night in a feminist city. They discover places, sing, perform scores, stroll, hang out on the corner, and support one another. The feminist city makes it possible for all bodies and genders to move freely. How can this be tested in the actual city? In which places in the city do you rarely move? Where have you always wanted to hang out? Where would you not go alone? Where do you feel comfortable and where would you like to hang out with others? Where can you sing out loud? We want to visit places in Berlin on a Nightwalk and record experiences and actions on a map of Berlin. Together we will write a collective manifesto for the night. FEMINIST NIGHT SCAPES takes place in appreciative memory of and in solidarity with all those who have been fighting for and with “Take back the Night” since 1975.

The starting point of the night walk is the Aral petrol station, Vor dem Schlesischen Tor, 10997 Berlin. The other locations will be decided by the participants during the walk.

Valid distance and hygiene measures will be guaranteed and adjusted at short notice in accordance with the applicable guidelines.
