Queer Femininities in Action 

A one-day festival dedicated to celebrating and discussing the various existences, practices and desires of queer fem/femme identities through action. The devaluation of femininity and the pathologization of queer desire, gender non-conformity and body diversity is a long-standing issue. The witch hunts never ended. They transformed, and the legacy of patriarchal violence lives on under different names. Ten local and international queer/trans/ non-binary artists will present several performances, both indoors and in the surrounding nature on the premises of present-day Otto-Wagner-Spital, a psychiatric hospital complex that was a site of Nazi crimes. The subversive potential of feminine forms of expression will be further explored in a moderated talk.

The event is fully booked!
Free entry!

The event is not fully barrier-free. Most but not all spaces are wheelchair accessible. Further, the (paved) way from the meeting point is approx. 1 km uphill.
