Where?: Trans*Inter*Queer, Glogauer Strasse 19
Languages: German and German Sign Language

Over the course of one weekend we will produce short animation films in groups. With paper cut-outs, a little imagination and lots of fun, you’ll use stop motion animation techniques to create a film using Betty Crocker recipes, user’s guides for battery-powered screwdrivers, or assembly instructions for IKEA bookcases as inspiration… Wait, what do these things have to do with identity and gender?!? Well, what if we read them differently and transform them?…

You don’t need any prior knowledge or experience. If you have a digital camera or a tripod, bring them with you, but we’ll provide the necessary equipment.
