Panel Discussion «Communities – Intersectionality of Cultural Spaces»

Löwenbräukunst events April 1, 2023 04:00 pm – 05:00 pm


The demand for more diversity and the visibility and participation of marginalized communities in the arts and culture are currently being discussed more than ever. But who do we mean when we talk about communities? Who is thought about by the mechanisms and structures of the art and culture business and who is made invisible? What can institutions learn from communities? What do intersectional spaces look like inside and outside institutions, where plural communities can emerge and solidarity can be lived in the long term?

In this conversation between actors from Zurich's art, culture and activism landscape, Yuvviki Dioh (Diversity Agent, Schauspielhaus Zürich), Muhammed Kaltuk (dance and performance artist) and Anna Rosenwasser (LGBTQI activist, political influencer) discuss questions around participation and co-creation of Swiss cultural spaces based on the concept of communities. The talk will be moderated by Tasnim Baghdadi (Head of Mediation and Programs, Migros Museum of Contemporary Art) and will take place in collaboration with not_your_bubble* in the context of the Löwenbräukunst Open House.

The conversation will take place in German on site and as a livestream. Find the livestream here.

Yuvviki Dioh (Diversity Agent, Schauspielhaus Zürich), born in Zurich in 1991, joined Schauspielhaus Zürich as Diversity Agent in February 2022. Yuvviki works on anti-racist, queer-feminist, and power- and social-critical issues – also in activist-collective and public contexts. Today, Yuvviki uses the academic and activist knowledge she has accumulated over the years to help shape the diversity-oriented organizational development of Schauspielhaus Zürich in a sustainable way.

Choreographer Muhammed Kaltuk (dance and performance artist, Zurich) was born and raised in Switzerland in a conservative Turkish family. An attempt to break out of his parents' home, Kaltuk made a name for himself in the Swiss hip-hop scene. At the age of 22, he gained his first production experience at a theater and recognized in it the opportunity to find his own voice to artistically engage with the world. There he discovered his passion for composing and creating material from the movement repertoire of dancers with whom he collaborates, as well as his awareness of the transformative power of dance for social change.

Anna Rosenwasser
works as an LGBTQ expert, feminist writer, and political influencer. Before that, she was executive director of the Lesbian Organization Switzerland (LOS) for four years and has worked as a freelance journalist since 2008. Today, she writes regular columns on LGBTQ issues, conducts workshops and lectures on queer feminist topics, and runs one of the most successful feminist channels on Instagram with 28,000 followers.

Moderation: Tasnim Baghdadi (Head of Education and Program at Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst)
