✧ THE CUMMING DYKESURRECTION ✧
grand season closing party
In a dark back lit alley, on a small, unnamed street behind Ostkreuz, we invite you to commonly invoke the resurrection of the dyke bar. Let’s celebrate dyke culture in its most expanded sense chanelling past and present complex and fluid experiences of feminine-spectrum queerness.
✧ Angry dyke political esthetician Coco ✧
reading from her latest report on the death of the dyke bar
Why are dyke bars dying? How did we get here and what can we do? What does it mean to not have permanent spaces in which to gather but temporary ones that are dependent upon the jurisdiction of others? How can we look back and learn from the queer herstory of dyke bars that are problematically rooted in second wave feminism’s essentialist claims on dykedom while holistically looking forward to create queer spaces for dykes that envelope a broadened understanding of the term? Join this talk for musings on a contemporary dykesurrection that hopes to incite ideas for a critical resuscitation of the dyke bar.

While we may not find answers to any of the above questions, we might find -- through too strong a drink, in a dimly lit corner, during a performance, lecture, or hot and sweaty DJ set by some of Berlin’s dykiest artists and community-- a politicized promise of possibilities.
we'll have a fire going in the garden for you, it'll be ultimate magic
