Sharing Feminisms | 19-21 May 2022


From 19 to 21 May 2022, the Goethe-Institut was staging the interdisciplinary festival “Frequencies. Sharing Feminisms”. Over three days, the festival opened up resonant spaces for feminist debates and movements – multiperspectival, intersectional and diverse – at the Pfefferberg area and the Sophiensæle in Berlin.

The term “frequencies” represents the polyphony of feminisms. It encompasses the range of corresponding topics and concerns as well as the different feminist movements and waves. Discursive and artistic contributions by activists, authors, artists, media professionals, performers and academics from Africa, Asia, Europe and South America made this rich diversity tangible.
