#StayAtHome 03: Small Town Boy

#StayAtHome & discover the queer culture!

In view of the difficult times in which we have to limit social contact, our free time is restricted to our four walls! That’s why we want to show you tips for articles, portraits, interviews or documentaries in the coming days and weeks! Here you can find a list of all the recent posts!

“You leave in the morning with everything you own… Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.”

That’s how Bronski Beat described a young man’s escape from a narrow-minded world of repression and lack of recognition to the big city, far away and free: London, New York, Berlin… These metropolises were and are the place where people can rediscover and reinvent themselves, reject and question traditional roles and paths, and redefine families and relationships. They can re-negotiate their attachments, experiment with everything that their families prevented them from living out at home. Is it possible to be a different kind of man? A different kind of woman? Can you ever stop being a son or daughter? Is it possible to reject authority, and live and love in a different way? Love, in theory and in practice, appears to still be the discursive battlefield on which our many contemporary conflicts about gender, sexual and cultural identities in everyday life are carried out. What can and should a “man”, a “woman” be today? How will we define family, nation and belonging in the future?
In this research project, Falk Richter and the Gorki ensemble explore the question of what happens when young men also leave the patriarchy behind.
THE STREAM WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM 1/APRIL 6PM FOR 24 HOURS.
