Slight Discomfort 2
Online Video Lecture by Julia Lübbecke
Slight Discomfort 2 is the extension of a video lecture by Julia Lübbecke from 2016/2017, which, based on theorists such as Angela McRobbie or bell hooks, dealt with #womanwhowork, Beyoncé and the representatives of a supposed 4th Wave Feminism. It was dedicated to bodies that circulate between the online and offline spheres.
In the second part, the question of the bodies to come and the spaces that can make them possible is posed. An in-between that opens up wherever categories are subverted, denied and unlearned.
Julia Lübbecke (*1989 in Gießen) studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, at UMPRUM – Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Leipzig, where she graduated in 2019 with Peggy Buth and Tina Bara.
