"Women in Battle" - Rebellische Frauen

With the announcement "Women in Battle" the group fxtrouble, who are known in Berlin for their platform of the VULVA Club, hijack the Literaturhaus for an evening with young Norwegian authors* and transform it into a crazy place of fresh gender criticism. While Ingvild Lothe's poetry questions the image of young women between career, sexuality, madness and loneliness, Marta Breen's title-giving Grapic Novel takes a clairvoyant course through the history of feminism. Sofia N. Srour and Nancy Herz present parts of their book "Shamlos", in which the young Muslimas use their ingenuity and humour to make clear what it means to grow up as 'strangers' in the Norwegian welfare state. The texts are read by two actors* from the Theater an der Parkaue and supplemented by their views. The evening is in English and German.

"Flügel in Flammen" - An Evening about Dagny Juel with Anne Tismer and Lars Brandt

Dagny Juel's self-determined way of writing and living calls into question the bourgeois conventions of the late 19th century. Her progressive lifestyle made her travel from Norway to the Bohème around Strindberg und Munch in Berlin and to Tiflis, where she finally was slained. The performance artist Anne Tismer takes a closer look at Juel‘s writings and creates a crossover of science and fiction by imagining how Dagny Juel‘s life would have been in the matriarchal society of the Bonobos. In a conversation with the author and film maker Lars Brandt, the son of Rut and Willy Brandt, who translated Juel‘s complete works into German, Tismer will explore the importance of Dagny Juel‘s work for today. The discussion will be moderated by Julia Voss.
