ABOUT SWALE
Swale, by artist Mary Mattingly, is a floating garden of edible and medicinal plants that asks the question, what if healthy, fresh food could be a free public service and not just an expensive commodity? Built on a 130-foot by 40-foot barge Swale contains an edible forest garden using a sustainable form of agriculture called permaculture. 
Swale imagines an alternate future with water and fresh food as commons. www.swaleny.org


Removaland will be shown at Eco_Hack 2016 - Paper Forest.

Homosexualität_en - Last days

13.05 - 04.09.2016
LWL-Museum für Kunst und Kultur, Münster, Germany



Noch immer sind Liebes- und Lebensentwürfe abseits der heterosexuellen Norm in Teilen der Gesellschaft ein Tabu. Und selbst diejenigen, die sich für aufgeklärt halten, sind irritiert von Menschen, die sich dem anderen oder gar keinem Geschlecht zugehörig fühlen. Mit seiner Ausstellung „Homosexualität_en“ möchte das LWL-Museum für Kunst und Kultur in Münster dazu beitragen, die vielfältigen alternativen Sexualitäten und Geschlechteridentitäten der 
LGBTIQ-Community (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, Inter, Queer) in die Mitte der Gesellschaft zu holen. Die Ausstellungsmacher_innen verzichten dabei auf Belehrungen und zeigen Exponate unterschiedlichster Art: 
ein Porzellanservice für den Gewinn der Frauenfußball-EM 1989, Fotos der ersten bundesweiten Demonstrationen homosexueller Menschen in Münster 1972 oder auf Video gebannte Lebenserinnerungen queerer Männer und Frauen.

Die Sonderschau zeigt 150 Jahre Geschichte, Politik und Kultur homosexueller Frauen und Männer in Deutschland. 
Sie legt dar, wie gleichgeschlechtliche Sexualität und nonkonforme Geschlechtsidentitäten von der Gesetzgebung kriminalisiert, von der Medizin pathologisiert und gesellschaftlich ausgegrenzt wurden. So zeigt sie die rechtliche Entwicklung des Paragraphen 175 des Deutschen Strafgesetzbuches auf, der homosexuelle Handlungen unter Strafe stellte, von seinem Inkrafttreten im Jahr 1872, über die massive Verschärfung während der NS-Zeit und 
seine Beibehaltung bis zur endgültigen Abschaffung 1994.

Neben den gesellschaftlichen Repressionen widmet sich die Ausstellung den Emanzipationsbewegungen homo-, 
trans*- und intersexueller Menschen, die insbesondere seit der gesetzlichen Liberalisierung seit den 1960er Jahren an Dynamik gewannen und das gesellschaftliche Verständnis von geschlechtlicher Identität verändert haben. Arbeiten internationaler Künstler_innen u.a. von Monica Bonvicini, Louise Bourgeois, Cassils, Elmgreen & Dragset, 
Lotte Laserstein, Lee Lozano, Jeanne Mammen, Zanele Muholi, Julian Rosefeldt und 
Andy Warhol kommentieren auf vielfältige Weise die Ausstellungsthemen.

„Homosexualität_en“ lässt mit Dokumenten, Fotos, Videos und Kunstwerken Raum für eigene An- und Einsichten, Interpretationen und Rückschlüsse. Über 800 Exponate geben Einblick in die Geschichte und Gegenwart der Homosexualität_en der vergangenen 150 Jahre.
Die Ausstellung wurde im vergangenen Jahr im Schwulen Museum* und im Deutschen Historischen Museum in Berlin gezeigt und ist ein Gemeinschaftsprojekt mit dem LWL-Museum für Kunst und Kultur.

Summer School



15-20 August 2016
Research Center for Cultures, Politics and Identities (IPAK.Center)
Belgrade, Serbia 



The Summer School for Sexualities, Cultures, and Politics is permanent project, originally initiated by the Department for Gender Studies at the Institute for Social Sciences and Humanities “Euro-Balkan”, Skopje, Macedonia and the Faculty of Media and Communications - Singidunum, Belgrade, Serbia. In 2014, the School has moved to and was taken up organizationally by IPAK Center. 

The general aim of the School is to gather young post-graduate students, scholars and teaching staff from both Eastern and Western Europe and promote a shared platform for research and trans-disciplinary theoretical reflection on the complex modes of interweaving sexuality, culture and politics, and consequently of exchanging and questioning geopolitically determined discourses in the research of sexualities, gender studies, and queer theory. Our idea is to provide students, scholars and teachers with the opportunity to question, decenter and democratize these areas by way of deferring the notion of theoretical and geopolitical privilege which is often implied by these research areas, and thus to introduce new models of rethinking context-specific phenomena related to sexualities and, vice versa, 
to enrich theoretical paradigms with context specific phenomena and research. 

In this way, the School’s long-term goal is to (1) strategically stimulate the particularization and application of key ideas and theories in sexuality research locally, and to (2) universalize and popularize crucial and underprivileged positions and ideas on the European level, regardless of the East/West divide which is still central to the development of 
queer theory and sexuality research.

Our endeavor is not to relativize the embeddedness and situatedness of knowledges about sexualities, but to recognize and disrupt the existing invisible borders that obstruct the free dissemination of ideas as they are being determined by various hegemonic forces – political, educational, economic - in both Eastern and Western contexts of doing academic and 
artistic work related with our desires, bodies, and sexualities.

Roberta Orlando will present the Equality project at the Summer School for Sexualities, Cultures, and Politics.
