Intersectionality as a concept now seems to have arrived in the German cultural and arts sector, but the structures remain unchanged. However, the term is often depoliticized and the struggles of Black feminists are ignored. In this workshop, we will explore the history, meaning and functioning of intersectionality. In doing so, we will transfer the concept to our respective practices: What can an intersectional stance mean here? Intersectionality-sensitized work always means dealing with social relations of power and domination and questioning and expanding one’s own perspective. The workshop is to be understood as a learning and unlearning space. Thus, the workshop participants need to be open to their own involvement in power relations and to reflect critically on their own attitudes.
The workshop takes place in the framework of the solo exhibition AUFBEGEHREN by Magda Korsinsky, on view at alpha nova & galerie futura: 20.11.2021-14.01.2022.
