In German Sign Language (DGS) translated into spoken German.
The event focuses on audism. Audism refers to decades of discrimination of Deaf People. Hearing and speaking are define what is seen as normal. Deaf people are seen as having a defecit, and sign language is devalued. Are hearing poeple so self-assured that they ignore audism? When do conflicts start? How does the Deaf Community relate to queer-feminsim? And to racism?
We: Xenia Dürr, Silvia Gegenfurtner, Simone Lönne, Melanie Loy.
