The Poznań instalment in a series of events that NTGent and the International Institute of Political Murder have been holding since 2020. Artists, activists, politicians and philosophers from all over the world meet online every two weeks to discuss issues related to a policy of resistance to be implemented against political, economic and cultural injustice.
The fifteenth episode of School of Resistance, created in the context of the Malta Festival Poznan 2021, will bring together several people who center their work around queer liberation. Together with the author of Xenofeminism, Helen Hester and the Polish drag performer and political activist Maciej Gosniowski will talk about LGBTQI rights and the artistic potential of transforming desire and gender.
