For this year’s Tag der Clubkultur La By’le has curated an event called ALL EYES ON US (Discussion & Performances Centering Queer Artists in Berlin’s Hip Hop Club Scene) to highlight the contribution of QTIBIPOC artists in Berlin’s hip hop scene and encourage the integration and maintenance of safer spaces for queer identities in hip hop club culture.
IXA, MC JOSH & Ventura have given us the honor of sharing their unique experiences as queer artists in the genre of hip hop as well as in-depth perspective on the current state of the inclusion and representation of queer artists in Berlin’s hip hop scene. The discussion will be moderated by singer-songwriter & queer feminist activist Malonda; and the evening will be a mix of reflection, celebration and community empowerment which will conclude with a DJ set by Caramel Mafia!
ALL EYES ON US is an event that centers the creative and limitless resilience of T*I*BIPOC artists in Berlin’s music scene and club culture.
