You don't have to be interested in art to take part in the workshop. But if you are already working artistically, you are welcome to bring something with you.
The workshop combines theoretical and practical questions, combines past and present and asks questions about the future. We deal with the topics of gender identity, role models and their representations in the media, in modern art and in everyday life. Which gender-nonconforming and trans * -ident artists exist in history and today? How can certain themes or emotions be transformed into certain artistic media? Which topics are being worked on? What hurdles were or are there in making and exhibiting art?
The portrayal of trans characters in the media has a long history of misrepresentation and stereotypes. Who portrays trans * -identical characters? And what does it mean when the stories are told not by the portrayed themselves, but by more privileged people? What is “ownership”?
How is the diversity of gender identity portrayed in the visual arts compared to that in everyday media?
What roles do artists play as role models for self-identification for children and young people?
