The space we want to create

Information: for being present – everybody!

Please help making this event a project as pleasant and as safe as possible for everybody!

Information on the content: Against sexualized violence and against racism!

The photographs of the exhibition concern the survival and visualization of sexualized violence.

  • All pictures (and the whole project) were created in the context of feminist self-organization.
  • Acts of violence are not displayed explicitly.
  • People with nude bodies are shown.
  • Make-up is used to artistically recreate the visible injuries.
  • Yet, memories and feelings can be triggered.

When taken out of context, the contents can be disappropriated for anti-Muslim racism or orientalist interpretations. This is explicitly not in the interest of the exhibitants.

If you are white positioned and grew up in the global north, you surely internalized orientalist patterns of thought. This will be the compulsory perspective you take when visiting this exhibition. We therefore want to invite you to deal with the topics of racism and orientalism, inform and reflect upon yourself.

Read for example the publications by

Care for yourself, because you are valuable.

If you notice before or during the exhibition that you are not feeling well, have a break and take the time you need to feel better again.


Unfortunately, due to many reasons, we have to be more spontaneous than planned! Please excuse that our announcements are on short notice. Please look under www.kalinka-m.org/queerthing22 for current event details.


Please register as soon as possible via e-mail to confirm your participation (especially when spots are limited), and to declare special needs or apply for child care.

We try to reduce impediments for people with dis_abilities and try to take care of individual needs.

The exhibition is labelled in German and English.

Please contact us if you want to participate and need a translation/translator. We will try to organize a whisper translation.

Some events will be translated into sign language. Please tell interested people in your circle of acquaintances.

Between „abolishing (national) borders“ and „taking (personal) boundaries seriously“

In order to make as many people as possible feel comfortable, we ask you to be aware of your assumptions on others.

For example their gender/pronoun, language, origin, situation in life, hearing/deaf, etc.

Be especially aware that these are only assumptions which can be wrong and hurt. Please act not according to them, with general friendlyness.

If you see or experience behaviour that does not respect your boundaries or those of others, we will try our best to support you. We invite you to let us know.

Discrimination and violence have no place here

Discrimination and violence comprise beside others:

  • all types of racism (for example against muslims, black people or Sinti and Roma)
  • Hostility against homosexual, trans or queer people
  • antisemitism (Hostility against jews, for example by demonisation, double standards, delegitimation)
  • sexism (degradation in context of the category gender), misogyny (hostility against women)
  • classism (degradation because of so-called „social or socio-economical origin“ or „class“, for example due to level of formal education or money)
  • ableism (degradation based on body or mental state)
  • fatshaming (degradation because of weight)
  • ageism (degradation because of age)

Getting kicked out
