Resistance • Feminisms • Revolution

  • Festival

Feminist movements around the world are leading the fights against capitalist appropriation, authoritarianism, and (neo-)colonialism. Unlike a liberal predominant Western feminist agenda, they do not reduce their demand to a mere equal percentage of women* in a current toxic way of life. By viewing patriarchy as systemically interwoven with neoliberal politics, ecological destruction, and state violence, they are reframing the feminist project as a driver for political transformation and structural change. Now, in an artistic and discursive way, HAU Hebbel am Ufer is taking up these approaches: both through an international gathering to connect prominent feminists and diasporic communities from Iran, Kurdistan, North Africa, and Latin America; and through performances, dance, film, concerts, and more from Argentina, Chile, and Brazil.
