The Lesbian and Gay Film Festival Hamburg and Bildwechsel present during this years Lesbian and Gay Film Festival Hamburg:
TOO QUEER FOR MTV
Turning their backs on the notion of mass-appeal and profiting from the accessibility to technology and new broadcast channels, a large and diverse group of people are producing music-videos with a stance that reminds us of what punk was once all about: the do-it-yourself attitude. This is a selection of witty, daring, trashy, queer video-clips you will not be seeing on MTV anytime soon.
when: Friday, 19th of October, 2007 – midnight
venue: Metropolis Kino, Dammtorstr. 30a, Hamburg (metropolis-hamburg.de)

Bildwechsel is an umbrella organisation for women+ and their representation in media, culture and art.
It houses international archives and collections.
collecting/archiving/presenting – this is our slogan! for over 28 years we have worked as an ‘active’ artists archive.
Bildwechsel is a location, as such it creates a framework for artists, activists and researchers, for meetings and collective thinking and acting – locally, nationally and internationally.
The exhibition “hanging out with archives” invites you to dive-in and take a closer look at the archives and archival material we have, and the way we work as an active archive. From the traditional paper-file to the online video museum, the kunstlerinnenarchiv to the feminale collection, the documentations of events, workshops, trips, visits and tours – the visitor can explore the way Bildwechsel works as an active, engaged and developing collection.
