KLIRRRRR festival 2019

a festival of queer cultures of conflict

May 26 and June 2, 2019, District Berlin, Bessemmerstraße 2-14, Berlin-Tempelhof

the programme

Conflicts are everywhere – they reveal themselves in bodies and feelings, in groups of friends and neighborhoods, in the city and in politics. Conflicts are part of planets, fantasies, languages, and ways of life. How might cultures of conflict look that do without violence and question normalcy? Can we understand conflicts as contact zones between divided worlds? As breaks in divisions and occasions for rapprochement and change?

KLIRRRRR festival means: Encounter, gathering, a place where we speculate together and propose inspiring ways of dealing with current conflicts. The festival will be a space of practices, dancing, speaking, listening, of un_learning, arguing, experiencing.
