From 2010 to 2013, French photographer Antoine Bruy hitchhiked across Europe with no fixed course or destination in mind. Along the way, he met several individuals who had willingly abandoned modern lifestyles in exchange for freedom in the wilderness. Their faces and homes are compiled in Bruy’s compelling series Scrublands.

Criminal Queers Support Ohlauer Rebels 
This is a communique for a banner drop in solidarity with refugees fighting for their lives in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin. It was published on Indymedia on June 30, 2014, and is signed by “Some criminal queers and accomplices”. For more background on the struggle around the refugee-squatted school at Ohlauerstrasse, see the Ohlauer Infopoint blog here.  There is also a useful timeline of events in English here. 
A quote from the communiqué: 
"We do not speak in place of, or wish to speak over the voices of the folks occupying the Ohlauerstrasse school. The actions of these rebels have echoed loudly and powerfully from Berlin to Istanbul, Athens and beyond. To threaten to burn down a building and jump off the roof seems to us to say:“revolt or death”. The occupiers’ threats to the city and cops express a clear refusal to passively submit to the fate set out for them, and a choice to instead use their bodies to enforce their survival. For nearly a week now the occupiers have endured constant police harassment on the roof, while rejecting as misleading and insufficient every empty “offer” from the city. For these actions we have only respect and admiration.
At the same time, we have sensed a certain discord between the content of such actions and the form of some of the language used to describe them. A discourse of “nonviolence” and “human rights” keeps resurfacing, one which has made a point of distancing itself from “criminals”. We find the refugees’ rebellious actions inspiring, but we won’t position ourselves against those who are structurally criminalized. We count ourselves as among those for whom today’s prisons are built, and don’t wish to portray ourselves as innocent or blameless…on the contrary. We do not strive to legitimate or represent ourselves within the existent. We see this as a losing game, which ultimately serves only to demarcate who is killable and rapable, while positioning the State as an ally.”

40 Berlin refugees are still on the roof of their squat. The press has been banned, and attempts to give food to the refugees have been blocked. The press will take action in court regarding their being blocked from speaking to the refugees. Police claim the reason they will not allow journalists in is that the refugees may take them hostage. #ohlauer Updates -> http://revolution-news.com/berlin-refugees-threaten-to-set-squat-on-fire-if-police-attempt-eviction/

Vortrag & Diskussion // Das Persönliche ist politisch - Identitätskonstruktionen in queer/feministischen Personal Zines //

Wann? 27.06.2013

Wo? HSG der Universität Leipzig, Augustusplatz, HS 5

Was kann es für die eigene Identität bedeuten lesbisch, genderqueer oder Drag Queen zu sein? Diese Veranstaltung widmet sich möglichen Antworten auf diese Fragen aus der Lektüre queer/feministischen Personal Zines.
Personal Zines sind selbstpublizierte, nicht-kommerzielle Veröffentlichungen mit einer kleinen Auflage, in denen das Leben des_der Schreibenden im Mittelpunkt steht. Zines sind autobiographische Dokumente, in denen Menschen über sich selbst und ihre Geschichte reflektieren und dabei in einem performativen Akt Bilder dieses Selbst schaffen. Dieses Schreiben ist emanzipativ und eröffnet Freiräume, gleichzeitig bringt es die Limitierung durch soziale Normen bezüglich Geschlecht und Sexualität zum Ausdruck.
Das Kerninteresse des Vortrags richtet sich auf Prozesse der Identitätskonstruktion im autobiographischen Schreiben queer/feministischer Personal Zines. Es interessiert, auf welche Ideen und Konzepte dabei zurückgegriffen wird, welches Verständnis die Schreibenden von ihrer Identität haben, besonders in Hinblick auf Geschlecht und Begehren, und wie kollektive Identitäten verhandelt werden. Die Ziele sind das Aufzeigen der zentralen Kategorien des Horizontes, in dem queer/feministische Identitäten verortet sind, und ein Verständnis davon zu vermitteln, wie die eigene Identität im autobiographischen Schreiben konstruiert wird und welche Funktionen solche Narrative haben können.

Eine Veranstaltung im Rahmen der Vortragsreihe “women in science - empowerment now!” in Kooperation zwischen dem Referat für Gleichstellung und Lebensweisenpolitik des Stura’s der Universität Leipzig und dem soziokulturellen Zentrum Frauenkultur

Eintritt: frei

Vilnius is the gayest place on earth.

It´s where people come from Poland and Finland and Italy and Austria and Portugal and Germany and the Netherlands to become comfortable with their queerness, to go to their first lesbian parties, to embrace rainbows and unicorns, to become…
