Lecture in German
Schlechte Kunstwerke â€“ Vorlesungen mit Fallbeispielen
Eine radikal subjektive Auswahl von Andreas Storm und Simon Froehling mit biografischen Verlinkungen.
Uns allen begegnen im Laufe des Lebens schlechte Kunstwerke: Schreckliche BĂĽcher, qualvolle Musik oder hĂ¶llische Filme. Wir bewegen uns in den Vorlesungen in dem spannenden Feld zwischen Ambition und Wirklichkeit, zwischen Kunst und Konsum, zwischen ambitionierten KĂĽnstlern und mĂĽndigem Rezipient. Immer dem Motto treu: Das Gegenteil von Gut ist gut gemeint.
Andreas Storm prĂ¤sentiert: Schlechte schwule, lesbische und transsexuelle Kunst. Diesmal mit Simon Froehling, preisgekrĂ¶nter Autor aus ZĂĽrich, er liest aus eigenen JugendsĂĽnden.
A moody dive hunting for men.
Musical and humurous cabaret, charming and glamurous.
Swingender Partyauftakt mit Lindy Hop Probiere die erlernten Tanzschritte aus dem Lindy Hop Workshop gleich auf der TanzflĂ¤che aus! Die Offpride Hoppers entfĂĽhren dich mit einer musikalischen Reise in die Swing-Ă„ra auf den social dancefloor. It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing!

(Kool Kat Productions, Bern), FUTURE DANCEFLOOR LISTENING, Japanese Pop meets European Electro
Our mini grotesque music drama is about the grand and by now old Diva, who wants to present herself one more time with a glamorous show. With lots of pomp sheâ€™s getting on stage. But the long forgotten shadow of her past gets her just the moment when sheâ€™s rising her voice.
Weâ€™re the group Nebenwirkungen (side effects) from Berlin and make grotesque queer theatre with a political aspiration beyond agitation and agitprop. We prefer raising questions then giving blunt solutions. We prefer the grey area to fix images.
Princess Hans is alive in some form since 1885, at the moment a band based in Berlin. Members are JĂ¶rg Hochapfel and Hans Kellet. The project is in constant change, since 2003 itâ€™s live-performance, music, literature and film.
2010 Hochapfel and Kellet started to write their own songs, presenting them for the first time on stage on their current Switzerland. Their stile is melodrama of romanticism of the 19th century, from the dance on the volcano of the Berlin's 20â€™s, at the same time Free Jazz and Sampling. The music which aroused from this collaboration combines coquet, historic and contemporary.
HRH Princess Hans war and is the first daughter of the empress Sisi from Austria-Hungary. Through the century she was the muse of several artists and is now governing a monarchy of the new Austrian Hungarian kingdom in exile. Weâ€™re presenting this concert to the honour of their royal highness.

Queer Paulo Belzebitchy Wahlberliner aus Rio de Janeiro, ĂĽberrascht mit funkiger & punkiger Musik!
To accept the norms set by society is closing the eyes for an infinity of possibilities that diversity offers. Paulo Belzebitchy chose music as a medium to raise his voice against racism, sexism,heterosexism and other forms of discrimination.
Born in Fortaleza, Northeast of Brasil, the singer, producer and percussionist currently lives in Berlin. November 2010 he released his first EP,featuring the songs â€žHomophobia is so gayâ€ś, â€žPink Moneyâ€ś, â€žTourada Ă© Torturaâ€ś andâ€žBaile Funk Facist Funkâ€ś. Kaos GL Magazine, the first queer magazine in Turkey, printed an Interview with Paulo shortly after the release of the single â€žHomophobia is so gayâ€ś and its broadcasting by Dandelion Radio in London.
To support other artists and independent events, and to create networks beyond his own musical autonomy, Paulo Belzebitchy founded his own music label, Dama de Pau Productions. In February 2011 Dama de Pau Productions released the podcast â€žBaile Funk Facist Funkâ€ś in collaboration with the Canadian collective Dubearth.Paulo Belzebitchys latest single â€žO Poder Que a Bixa Temâ€ś endorsed by the spanish collective 3 Diablos was released End of February 2011.

â€śI make music like I make love â€“ electronically,â€ť says Berlin-based Australian Aurora Kiss (Benjamin Teicher).
Describing himself ambivalently as the â€śmale Lady Gagaâ€ť, Aurora Kiss is a multiple personality romantic, and assumes a myriad of personas â€“ horny young vampires, gin-sozzled former spies, love-struck French Legionnaires â€“ as drum machines pound and synthesisers chime all around his hand crafted electro-pop classics.

Nominated as â€śmost influent personalityâ€ť at the Mix! FilmFestival in Brazil, winner of the international Kings VILLAGE Contest in Rome , Jury of the Queer Festival of Saint Petersburg, OcĂ©an also acted in a few films in various men or women characters, including â€śLost in Generationsâ€ť and â€śFucking Different Telâ€™Avivâ€ť screened at the Berlinale 2009.
