The Lesbian and Gay Film Festival Hamburg and Bildwechsel present:
The best of ‘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.
date: January 21st, 2008
venue: Buttclub, Hafenstr.126, Hamburg

“A whip is a great way to get someone to be here now.
They can’t look away from it, and they can’t think about anything else.”
Pat Califia, A Secret Side of Lesbian Sexuality, in: The Advocate, December 27, 1979
New York based artists Ginger Brooks Takahashi and Ulrike Mueller present their new video work “Whip” as well as drawings and paper works. They approach their projects in a process and deal with the venue, its surrounding space and the prevailing social circumstances.
In preparation for their show together, they have been doing research at the Lesbian Herstory Archives in Brooklyn. more
