Pausen, Wünsche, Manifeste
‘I have learned about this through Crip Magazine…’ has become a frequently used phrase in recent years regarding knowledge about anti-ableist discourses, referring to terms such as Crip Time, Crip-Queer artistic positions and the historical struggles of disability rights movements. Sylvia Sadzinski described the project as a source of information and ‘a tool for self-empowerment and building an international queer-feminist-crip community’. Crip Magazine is a self-published magazine that has been released on and off since 2012. If we imagine the magazine space as a social space, it is one where different affinities have taken shape and become visible in their diverse materialities. In 2022, a loose collective was founded that plans to continue the production of Crip Magazine on a broader basis. In this talk, they discuss their ideas, forms of organisation, fluctuation as a crip necessity, breaks, urgencies, and the desire to work together.
born in Austria and living in London, identifies as a queer, crip-disabled, chronically ill dancer, cultural anthropologist, and pleasure-and-disability-justice activist. In her practice, Erhart explores movements of various physicalities, the diverse aesthetics of accessibility in dance and the overturning of ableism in the art industry. She performs, choreographs and teaches internationally.
is a crip-queer dancer and cultural worker living and working in Vienna. From 2015 to 2020, they were involved in collaborative work at Türkis Rosa Lila Villa, particularly the jointly organised conversion of the ground floor to make it fully accessible. Raina Hofer works for the mixed-abled dance and cultural association MAD Coproductions and initiated dance project days at Austrian schools with the Mello Yellow project.
works as an artist (drawings, video, installation) and art educator (mumok) in Vienna and has taught at various universities, including the University of Vienna and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. She explores linguistic and graphic (re)presentation as well as narration and translation processes. She has developed a method called ‘Sich Verzeichnen’ (which can mean both entering oneself in a register and making a mistake while drawing and not correcting that mistake), which helps to map experiences so as to develop a reflective understanding of the self and discover new possible courses of action.
artistic practice examines activist movements and subcultures from different times and revises categories of (dis)ability and non-conforming bodies. In 2012, she launched the magazine project Crip Magazine. Together with filmmaker Cordula Thym, Egermann produced the 30-minute docu-fiction television show C-TV (If I Tell You I Like You …) in 2023, which outlines the utopia of an inclusive world of film and the media in a representation-critical and humorous way. The same year, she and Thym received the Innovative Cinema Award at the Diagonale festival. Most recent participations in exhibitions: Total Museum Seoul (2022), 17th Istanbul Biennale (2022), Einstweilen wird es Mittag, Kunsthalle Wien (2022/23).
The talk will be translated into Austrian Sign Language (ÖGS).
