I would like to inform you about the upcoming conference of the
Disruption Network Lab, TRANSITIONING: Art, Politics & Technologies of
Gender Change, that will take place at the Kunstquartier Bethanien
(Berlin) on June 17-19, 2022.
The event aims to address the complexities of gender transition for both
young people and those who have long fought for this right, and to
present the implications of this practice in the realms of art, culture,
society and human rights. The programme series includes a conference,
film screenings, two community meet-ups and a community workshop.
The series explores designs of identity and sexuality both in the online
environment and in everyday life. It brings into dialogue artists,
activists, performers, transgender rights advocates, medical experts,
and the grassroots of international and Berlin's LGBTQI+ community.
