female trouble present:
VULVA CLUB #10 - About Matter
female trouble is a friendship based collective ( Roni Katz, Agata Siniarska, Xenia Dwertmann ) working in Berlin since 2013. We share a mutual process of artistic, intellectual, personal and political discourse revolving around identities, bodies, femininities and feminisms. Female Trouble focus on hosting events and practicing collective performances. Our public platform is VULVA CLUB - themed screenings and lectures, realized in collaboration with artist-run spaces. VULVA CLUB expands the collective’s internal discourse beyond its own borders and works to amplify female/feminist perspectives in temporary communities.
In the October edition of VULVA CLUB, female trouble are hosting an evening around notions of matter In three singular talks. The artists Mars Dietz, Agata Siniarska, and Xenia Dwertmann will elaborate on their own ideas about matter/material/materiality drawing from and towards contemporary theory with Sara Ahmed, Rosi Braidotti, Nigel Thrift, Mel Y. Chin, Jane Bennett, June Jordan, Henry David Thoreau, and others.
E N T A N G L E M E N T of space, guests, hosts, drinks, bodies, and ideas, not collective actions but endless multiplicity of networking, human and non-human, affect as a material and structural component of the built environment, think about social forms, power, and place, shift the focus on nonhuman agency, the political potential of principles of destabilisation.
