People who have saved this event:


In the field of sport, discrimination is present as in hardly any other social sub-system. Gender-specific categories, that are often based on the principle of heteronormative exclusion, prevail.


In the context of the upcoming mega-events –the 2016 Olympic Games and the (men’s) European Football Championship– critical voices from the field of sport will be linked with creative interventions at the nGbK. The exhibition combines artistic positions with activist strategies - creating counterproposals to the consumer-oriented and nationalistic/indentitarian competition energy. Accompanying events offer a platform for emergence of queer solidarities and alternative concepts going beyond sport.
