Queer B-Cademy is a performance art installation, a festival-esque gathering and exchange of intersectional perspectives, a practice of queer utopia and futurism.
The four-day event includes multiple art genres and results in a temporary diverse sanctuary for queer people of all ages, identities and beliefs. Sharing knowledge and experience with everyone is a big part of it that takes place in workshops, at the bar, during a queer version of the Game of Life or on the dancefloor to some house music. There is also performance art and dance pieces, concerts, visual art, installations, talk shows and dj sets.
The objective of Queer B-Cademy revolves around the notions of knowledge – Which/whose knowledge is being validated? Whose experiences are left outside academia or generally speaking outside the public narrative? It takes inspiration from the works of José Esteban Muñoz and Fatima El-Tayeb who both connect the necessity of visionary queer concepts and a close and sharp look at the present situation of the diasporic PoC and migrant communities in Germany and Europe.
Since the a-cademic domain is exclusive and catering to a euro-centric, non-migrant, white, male, straight and cis-gendered population, Queer B-Cademy seeks to explore other narratives – the b-cademic approach – B as in Being, as in B-side, as in (allegedly) second best, as in continuing the alphabet, as in opening the spectrum.
