Turn on for illegal bodies, Acting out past lives of queer
A project by Julie Carvalho in collaboration with Roland Lauth, Sebastien Stolarczyk and the Magnus Hirschfeld Gesellschaft e.V. Berlin.
Considering our current bodies and gestures as legitimate archives, the project Turn on for illegal bodies, Acting out past lives of queer within Undisciplinary Learning: KNOWLEDGES approaches the history of the Institute for Sexology founded by Magnus Hirschfeld in 1919 in Berlin. The workshop of the performer and visual artist Julie Carvalho focuses on the rise of queer activism during the Weimar Republic in Berlin, and on the life narratives of queer individuals from this time. After knowledge sharing and discussions, we will play with props, stage, costumes and scenography to perform and affectionately question each other on our own intimate relationship to historical legitimacy. As a support for present bodies, the scenography will also display a film by french fashion designer and videast Sebastien Stolarczyc, on the wanderings of European queer identities in present Berlin. The workshop day will end with a sound piece from visual artist and sound composer Roland Lauth, who will turn laws defining legal intimacy into danceable beats.
