Feminismus Symposium. f******* – Towards New Perspectives on Feminism
Feminism and Motherhood

Discussion with Lisa Baraitser (director Department Psychosocial Studies and MaMSIE, Birkbeck University London), Mareen Linnartz (journalist, editor of Nido. Wir sind eine Familie, München) and Claudia Voigt (journalist, Hamburg; co-author Die Unmöglichen: Mütter, die Karriere machen), moderated by Bettina Springer (Espace Surplus, Berlin)

In the media landscape the battle over a new, renewed, reborn, or doomed feminism seems more ferocious than ever. Frontlines run between aspiration and conscience, historicity and critique, prejudice and fear, complains and anger. The project f******* aims to analyse and discuss present and future battlefields on an interdisciplinary basis from different perspectives. The program consists of a three-day symposium, an exhibition, a concert and a newspaper campaign.

A project of Espace Surplus (Berlin) together with Goldsmiths University London in cooperation with Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung and Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.)

The complete symposium is documented in a DVD-set and available at n.b.k.
