23rd of june, 19h: filmscreening with Q&A: Papa Rainbow

Popo Fan, China, 2016, 80min, Mandarin with engl. Subtitles

The documentary “Papa Rainbow” features six Chinese fathers who talk openly and freely about their experiences with their LGBT children.Most families have difficulties facing their lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender (LGBT) children. They have to contend with common social beliefs that homosexuality is shameful, abnormal, a perverted condition caused by deviant family relationships. Many parents see their kids as their property, and fathers often assert their authority to ensure that no harm comes to the family reputation.
Speaking out against discrimination and stigma, the protagonists in this documentary redefine what it means to protect a household. They fully embrace their kids for who they are, and become pioneer activists fighting for an equal and diverse society.
There will be a Q&A with Xiaogang Wei after the filmscreeningPopo Fan is a queer independent filmmaker and curator based in Beijing. He is the author of Happy Together: 100 Queer Films (Beifang Wenyi Press, 2007), and he directs the China Queer Film Festival Tour, which has travelled to over 20 major cities in China since 2008. His documentary works mostly focus on LGBTQ/gender issues. His films have been shown in film festivals around the world and he has been a committee member of the Beijing Queer Film Festival since 2009.Xiaogang Wei has followed the production of Papa Rainbow closely and works with Popo Fan in the Beijing Filmfestival and Queer Comrads. He is the Co-curator of the Beijing Queer Film Festival and a board member of the Beijing LGBT Centre. In 2007, he founded the LGBT webcast “Queer Comrades”, for which he hosted and directed more than 50 half-hour episodes.

Noah Sow is well known as an author. Her Works in the field of Fine Arts are however equally remarkable. Multimedia installations, short films, audio art, digital conceptual art and performance are just some of the methods of her choice. On this day Noah Sow will be presenting some of her works. Noah Sow’s philosophy is to produce in as multifaceted a way as possible, so that all persons from the diasporas can choose their own level of approach.

Her work deals with decolonisation, pop, empowerment, resilience, changing of the gaze, Black art and media. After the presentation there will be space for questions and exchange.

08./09. Juli: Workshop von Compa e.V. in Kooperation mit xart splitta

Orientierung an der Wahrnehmung der Bewegung

Die Orientación de la Percepción del Movimiento (Orientierung an der Wahrnehmung der Bewegung) begreift Körper als Speicher sozialer Erfahrungen und Bewegung als Mittel zur Veränderung. Durch Bewegung erlangen die Körper ein Bewusstsein über ihre Geschichte. Bewegung ist sowohl äußere als auch innere Regung des Körpers. Innere Regungen des Körpers befähigen uns, uns den Wandel vorzustellen. Ohne die Fähigkeit, sich innerlich wie äußerlich zu bewegen, bleiben unsere Körper gefangen und blockieren sich selbst. Sie bleiben in der Ignoranz und verharren im Unbewusstsein.
Wir leben in einer Kultur der Unterdrückung, von der das Erbe der Kolonialzeit ein Teil davon ist. Dieses System bestimmt immer noch über uns in vielen Facetten. Es wird als unterschwellige Information permanent eingeflößt und unsere Körper saugen es unbewusst auf.
In diesem Workshop lernen wir die Sprache und die Atmung unseres eigenen Körpers bewusster wahrzunehmen, Achtsamkeit zu gewinnen um die Möglichkeit herzustellen, zu unseren eigenen Kern zurückzukehren. Wir möchten unsere innere und äußere Welt ohne Wertung betrachten.
Leitung: Silvia Chávez Gaytán / Karen Michelsen Castañón, Mitglieder von Compa Berlin e.V.
