Tiny OyoUnity @ ZK/U | Queer Analog Darkroom: Seeing Yourself – Queer Self-Portraits
24.September 2023 15:00 - 19:00
From late August to mid-October, our Tiny House travels through Berlin districts, engaging interactively with the local community and partners at cultural venues and institutions. Through a diverse range of workshops, the aim is to connect decolonial knowledge and artistic practices with marketing, design, and knowledge dissemination.
Third stop: @ ZK/U (Siemensstraße 27, 10551 Berlin)
"Seeing Yourself - Queer Self Portraits" and "Seeing Other: Queer Portraits" is a set of workshops. They will explore how photography can function as a tool/part of for queer liberation. Collectively the power structures photography is based on, both in theory and practise. will be discussed. There will be a focus on the history of the camera in the course of colonialism and heteronormativity and the resulting power differences between the photographed and the photographer. Which ways and possibilities could be there, to queer, recode and deconstruct these power structures? Two workshops are offered, which can be attended independently of each other.
Workshop 1 - Self-Portraits:
The first workshop is experimenting with putting oneself in front of the camera. For this, the focus lies upon looking at self-portraiture in queer art history, talking about imaginations, trying to help each other realise them, and speaking about the photographs that will be taken. This workshop is supported by instant photography, through which one can directly see how the image comes to life and at the same time gives a kind of ownership over the image. Participants can present the results at the end of the Tiny House Project at a group exhibition.
Tickets: Free admission! | Registration here (until 23 September, 15:00 h)

QAD - Queer Analog Darkroom - is a self-organized, inclusive skills-sharing collective for analogue photography in Berlin. The core team consists of eight people, all of whom bring a wide range of different skills and knowledge related to photography. In addition to their queerness, it is the different identities and experiences of marginalization that connect the members of the collective and that shape their work and perspectives on photography. As part of the 'Urbane Praxis' project funding, the Queer Analog Darkroom collective, founded in 2022, wants to help shape urban public space in cooperation with Oyoun. Rooms are not accessible to everyone in the same way. The goal of the QAD collective is to create spaces for a community around analogue film development and film technology through self-organized and non-commercial work. It should be a space in which people learn together and which develops collectively step by step.
The project Tiny OyoUnity is part of the initiative DRAUSSENSTADT funded by the Berliner Projektfonds Urbane Praxis and the Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Gesellschaflichen Zusammenhalt.
