fantastic feminist futures
Sat 17. September at 4pm
with Improvisation Group / Maddi Fuente Ubani, Cristina Leoni-Osion, Biljiana Pais, Lena Pozdnyakova, Cristina Viegas
Address: Strandbad Tegelsee /Zentrum für Kultur und Erholung
Schwarzer Weg 95, 13505 Berlin
Hosted by: Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit and Moabit Mountain College


fantastic feminist futures invite the Improvisation Group which was initiated at Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit by dancer and choreographer Maddi Fuente Ubani. The sessions are an invitation to find one’s own movement through free investigation by using images, but also sound or different qualities of movement.


„The research starts alone (in solo) and allows you to create awareness of the space and composition in real time. We work in small groups and all together afterwards, as one breath.“
Maddi Fuente Ubani


During the event we will get inside in the group practice: starting from the group warm-up, the investigation of group´s energy, game-alike exercises, to the movement proposal, inspired also by the nature of the place. At the end the group will share in the form of both performer and audience with the rest. For those who are interested in joining the group activity, no previous dance experience is necessary, just the desire to share and search in oneself. Afterwards, we will enjoy a cochlear (akelarre), reflect upon our experience, asking questions, and eating together.
Participation is free of charge. No registration is required.

fantastic feminist futures
 invite artists who relate to intersectional feminist perspectives to introduce their artistic practices. We are interested in bringing to light the processes, the small changes rather than the spectacular leaps, the knowledge of what often remains in the shadows. This close reading of practices happens in the very particular place of Strandbad Tegel/Zentrum für Kultur und Erholung: on the one hand remote, in the woods on the lake Tegel, and at once in the middle of the city of Berlin. This gives us the trigger to embrace artistic practices outside the traditional context of the white cube while connecting and reconnecting to the environment. The presentations will be intertwined with the joint preparation of food, walks, or readings, engaging different future orientations.
fantastic feminist futures is started by Nadira Husain, Agnieszka Kilian and Marina Naprushkina.

Lesen am See #2
COVEN BERLIN reads the YEAR OF THE BOG
with: Zinzi Buchanan, Inky Lee, Daniela Medina Poch, and Meghna Singh

Sunday 4. September at 6:00 pm
Address: Strandbad Tegelsee /Zentrum für Kultur und Erholung
Schwarzer Weg 95, 13505 Berlin
Hosted by: Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit and Moabit Mountain College

COVEN BERLIN is a queer art collective focused on feminism, love, gender, and sexuality. Founded in 2013, it blossomed when some queers answered a Craigslist ad. Current members are Harley Aussoleil, Frances Breden, Lorena Juan, Judy Landkammer, Kiona Hagen Niehaus, and Louise Trueheart. As a group, COVEN BERLIN wants to create an open sphere to defy systemic violence and inequality, and is devoted to emotional processing, collective healing, political reassessment, paying fairly, and supportive time management strategies. The collective nurtures cultural work, in Berlin and online, in the form of embodied affective research and digital hybrid curatorial approaches, always with a breath of humor.

From March 2021-2022 they hosted the YEAR OF THE BOG on their online magazine. This evening, COVEN and some of the authors who contributed to this issue will read their work on the Bog.  From the YEAR OF THE BOG’s curatorial text: „Compared to flowing waters, the bog is stagnant and viscous, reticent. While fluidity emphasizes total dissolution and infinite possibilities, viscosity draws attention to sites of resistance and opposition. The Bog is a sort of membrane between the forest and the wetland. A transition area, an open-ended gathering of living and dead matter. Bogs are queer ecosystems. Their cool and wet environment preserves many futures under a single slimy surface, without presumption of a seamlessly harmonious collaboration. “

In the frame of the cycle „Lesen am See“ we would like to invite diverse reading groups and collectives to share their practices, related to the dialogical nature of text itself as well the community of readers & listeners.

Lesen am See / kelps – archives – connecting bodies of water / Samstag, 20. August um 18 Uhr

Lesen am See: Reading#1: kelps – archives – connecting bodies of water
Saturday 20. August at 6:00 pm

With „Lesen am See“ we start the reading events dedicated to different voices, approaches to the performed text as a form of knowledge‘s sharing. For the first reading we invited a reading group who focuses on the unique nature of kelps, water bodies, and water itself.

„This session is an invitation to meet at the shore of the lake Tegel to join an interdisciplinary group for a collective reading and listening session. In these hot days of summer, sweating and hiding from the sun, while our riverbeds lay dry and bodies (human and nonhuman alike) are exposed to water scarcity, pollutions, and displacements, we seek out healing knowledges and practices that connect our diverse experiences of living with water as a precious and precarious substance.

Building on our different backgrounds, experiences and projects we dive into texts about bodies of water and bodies in water that will flow together in an attempt to trace hydro–logical cycles, saturations, memories, and water politics followed by a breathing exercise and a discussion open to the public. We invite you to join us in this fluid exploration of wayward waterways, queer algae, and feminist futures.“-Galina Yarmanova, Jahia La Sangoma, Marianna Szczygielska, Marianna Szczygielska, Sybille Neumeyer, Svitlana Shymko.

fantastic feminist futures

Sun 31. July at 15:00
with Jelena Fužinato, Bojana Fužinato and Endi Tupja 

Kitchen#3 unfinished, undone and never ending

Address: Strandbad Tegelsee /Zentrum für Kultur und Erholung
Schwarzer Weg 95, 13505 Berlin

Hosted by: Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit and Moabit Mountain CollegeParticipation is free of charge, no registration is required
fantastic feminist futures invite Jelena and Bojana Fužinato to remake their work “Kitchen” from 2013 that explored notions of re-traditionalisation and emancipation in a feminist context. The piece is a role-play of three performers switching between cooking and reading, intending to reflect on different dimensions and contrasts of feminist perspectives in the present. The words and ideas, drawing from text and art theory from the second and third wave feminism, were juxtaposed to the roasting a chicken, baking a cake or flattening dough. The outcome of these confused and juxtaposed perspectives on womanhood and femininity generate a chaotic and somewhat absurd situation that is hyper-accentuated by the two concurrent activities—of critical feminist theory alongside a domestic activity gendered conventionally female.
This first part remains visually hidden for a public, who will have only a sonic access to the „Kitchen“ through the open window. 
 
At 15.00 the food will be served at the table for the public, the artist will discuss their practice and reflect upon the further development of the project.

The event will be documented and shown in August at the exhibition „Economy of (female) labor“ in Prishtina, curated by Adna Muslija and Elisa Maxhuni. This exhibition is part of the project “How to be a pioneer: Feminism, Art, and Future“, organised by Manifesto gallery from Sarajevo and mini studio from Pristina.

Jelena Fužinato works in drawing and installation media to explore authoritarian relations inside institutions such as family, schools, museums and states. The question of how laws, rules and power construct social norms and influence the behaviour, knowledge, and skills of people, has been the focus of her work in recent years. Fužinato deals with real events but is using speculation and fiction in their treatment and presentation. The works and methods that she chooses are frequently contra-positioned from the central narratives and often talk about marginal social positions of things and beings. Her layered approach brings together existing references and false information to generate new metaphorical fabrication.

Bojana Fužinato contextualizes feminist practices using the media of traditional women’s crafts, such as weaving, embroidery, knitting, and textiles, as well as objects such as needles and the space belonging to the female intimate zone. In recent years, the focus of her work has been based on the research of the private zone of the subject’s action and its transition into the public sphere. What political and sociological obstacles does the subject go through and how does she deal with them? With focusing on certain questions, she tries to find methodology for her visual installations: Can we be aware of the line between private and public activity in our lives? Is that harder if the subject is the one who creates? Weaving in her room, did my grandmother ever think that by creating that piece of material on the loom, her life would go from a private to a public one (inaccessible to her at the time)? By transposing a piece of textile that I weave by hand into an object titled installation in space, I break through the thin line between the private and the public.

Endi Tupja is an artist, filmmaker/storyteller, and cultural practitioner based between Berlin and Tirana. Her research is centered in experimenting with strategies of memory recuperation and the potential of re-enactment with time witnesses. She explores the limits of (self) representation as well as its tangential relation to video art. There is a friction between the essential and a sense of exaggeration omnipresent in her search for clarity. She continuously tries to challenge a certain idea of established institutional formality in artistic research and academic language.

With this artist talk we start the cycle fantastic feminist futures. In the frame of the cycle, we will invite artists who relate to intersectional feminist perspective to introduce their artistic practices. We are interested in bringing to light the processes, the small changes rather than the spectacular leaps, the knowledge of what often remains in the shadows. This close reading of practices happens in the very particular place of Strandbad Tegel/Zentrum für Kultur und Erholung: on the one hand remote, in the woods on the lake Tegel, and at once in the middle of the city of Berlin. This gives us the trigger to embrace the artistic practices outside the traditional context of the white cube while connecting and reconnecting to the environment. The presentations will be intertwined with the joint preparation of food, walks or readings, engaging different future orientations.
fantastic feminist futures is started by Nadira Husain, Agnieszka Kilian and Marina Naprushkina.

Rupali Patil’s visual arts practice spans across print-making, drawing, and installations. Her subjects mainly focus on social issues, especially the subject of water and natural mineral crises. In some of her work which relates to the term “Ecofeminism”, she also depicts destitute farmers from areas that became industrialized. Workers who became visual metaphors in her drawings inhabit an imaginary, geographically unspecified world of Patil’s. She also uses cartography and heterotopic landscapes and architecture in her drawing, which looks dangerously completely devoid of human existence. In frame of feminist fantastic future, she will talk about how these previous projects connect to the current idea she has been developing The Coalition of Waters: From geopoetics to geopolitics (and back to poetics). Rupali Patil reaches for this complex and seemingly contradictory hydro-logic: connecting and separating, taking on shapes (surrendering?) and simultaneously giving shape and a peculiar malleability, which uses a certain regime of visibility and invisibility of water. This ambivalent order is supported by knowledge different from that of strict concepts and divisions, as well as different politics.

Rupali Patil (IND) was born and brought up in Pune. She completed her Bachelors in Fine Arts from the Bharti Vidyapeeth Pune (2007) and Master’s in Printmaking from Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda (2011).  Her works were presented at the Biennales such as the 2020 3rd Industrial Art Biennial in Croatia, Ride into the sun, Habit cohabit (Pune Biennale 2017), and Saltwater theory of thought-form (14th Istanbul Biennale 2015). She has also participated in several group exhibitions such as Eros (Parasite, University Museum, and Art Gallery, Hong Kong, 2014), Inserts curated by RAQS media collective (IGNCA Delhi), Kamarado (St Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, 2015), ‘Harbinger of Chaos’ (Bunkier Sztuki Gallery of Contemporary art in Krakow 2016-17), Dreams and dramas law as literature  NGBK Berlin 2017), We the people (Central Slovakian Gallery in Banska Bystrica, 2018), This Rare Earth Artefact (STUK Leuven 2018), and Seeds are being sown (Shrine empire 2020). Also, in 2014, Clark House Initiative in Mumbai hosted her debut Solo exhibition ‘Everybody Drinks but Nobody Cries’. She was one of the members of the Shunya Art Collective. She lives and works in Pune.
