Burning Issues Meets Kampnagel
All streamed talks are collected in a YouTube Playlist here:
Initiated in 2018 by Lisa Jopt and Nicola Bramkamp, BURNING ISSUES is the forum that brings together artists* and media professionals from all over Germany to make the industry fairer and ask questions. How many genders does the theater actually know? What role do factors such as class or age play in the course of a theater career? How do structural racism and sexism intersect in the cultural industry? How can institutions break down barriers and act in solidarity? In lectures, discussions, artistic interventions, performances and network formats, gender-specific hierarchies at city theaters and independent production houses, in ensembles and collectives, on and behind the stage will be examined. The nationwide conference for cultural and theater professionals on gender equality was founded in Bonn, and this year it is taking place in Hamburg in cooperation with Kampnagel.
