Tender Talk Nr. 3:
Carolin Emcke &
Vaginal Davis

A Live-Talk online on Zoom

* Find the recording of the Tender Talk No.3 here *

Discourse meets Drag: Carolin Emcke meets Vaginal Davis! In her art, Vaginal Davis works with an explosive array of media and materials, her performances have politicised generations of queer artists (including our in-house director Wu Tsang), and her lectures have taken her as far as the lecture halls of Harvard. Where Vaginal Davis seems to elude unambiguity, Carolin Emcke finds a language for the inexpressible. Like hardly anyone else, the philosopher and author succeeds in a radical analysis of our current times without losing the tenderness of the individual fate. We are very much looking forward to the encounter between the two Berliners by choice, to intellectuality and intersexuality in Tender Talk No. 3.

 

Tender Talks: Every fortnight in February and March, the Schauspielhaus invites two individuals to engage in a dialogue on Zoom; where they get in touch with each other by speaking and thinking.

The talk will be held in English with simultaneous translation into German and will last approximately 60 minutes. There will be an opportunity to ask questions afterwards. The talk is limited to 1,000 people, no registration necessary.

Tender Talk Nr. 4
Annie Sprinkle, Beth Stephens und
Mithu M. Sanyal

Wie fühlt es sich an, mit der Erde verheiratet zu sein? Annie Sprinkle und Beth Stephens wissen es: Die beiden Künstler*innen und Gründer*innen des Ecosex Movement haben Planet Earth vor ein paar Jahren das Ja-Wort gegeben und führen seitdem eine künstlerische Liebesbeziehung mit der Natur – queer-feministisch, post-humanistisch, ökologisch, verspielt und voller Humor. Im Tender Talk #4 trifft das Duo auf ihre langjährige Freundin und Denkerin in crime, die Kulturwissenschaftlerin, Journalistin und Autorin Mithu M. Sanyal, die gerade mit ihrem ersten Roman «Identitti» und einem furiosen Ritt durch europäische Identitätspolitiken mitten ins Herz der Zeit trifft. Wir veröffentlichen an dieser Stelle die Aufzeichnung des Tender Talks und stellen ihr einen Erfahrungsbericht von Talaya Schmid zur Seite.
