Talk Talk Talk #2 : Commitment, Care, Community

May 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm



*Commitment, Care, Community*

In the second edition of our public panel discussion and podcast series TALK TALK TALK, three reseachers and activists navigate the paradox of promise through the construction of „safety“ by sharing their formative experience in queer and feminist circles. They look into what strengthening a balance between accountability, discomfort, and Community-Care would entail. Also they wonder about how they can learn from ancestry knowledge when creating afrofuturistic meaningfulness and belongingness. This talk reflects upon what it means to build caring communities that challenge themselves by addressing the notions of repression, power dynamics and the politics of space in and outside their margins.

With Niloofar Rasooli (Zanjan/Zurich)

Niloofar Rasooli (she/her) is a writer from Iran. Niloofar writes and teaches at the intersection of anti-colonial queer feminism, erased memories and archives, resistance, rebellion, revolution, and the reclamations of the built and lived environment.

FupaMagic (GHA/Vienna/Bern)

FupaMagic (she/they), MA., MSc., is a Black educational scientist, lecturer, musical artist, facilitator and genderqueer lesbian. They work at the Gender Research Unit at the University of Vienna. Her work revolves at the intersection of education & community care by creating anti-racist, self-empowerming spaces for people navigating anti-queer hostility, anti-fatness and white supremacy in white dominant societies.

Moderated by Marilyn Umurungi, an art and cultural researcher, examines the stories of Black people in her work, which reveal the entanglements of racism, sexism and exoticism in the Swiss and European context. As an expert outside the field of historical studies, she seeks to apply various approaches to intersectionality to historical research. This episode and the space is open for everyone. The episode will be broadcasted over the airwaves on June 15th at 11:30 AM on Radio LoRa 97.5 MHZ
