Their involvement with film and photography is what connects the artists Dan Dansen and Justin Time. For both artists, their creative work is also shaped by a trans* perspective on the world. They employ a great deal of sensitivity for questions of gender, connected to an awareness – which is just as critical – of all that is contradictory and constructed in real lives. In this conversation, the artists clarify how this perspective is reflected in their works and with what political aspirations.
The TransInterQueer Salon explores the lives of trans*, inter* and other queer people in Berlin. Conversations with guests from the Berlin community create new spaces and allow for insights into lived diversity. For each event, the Grüner Salon hosts a different guest who represents the visibility of trans* and queer people in our society in a unique way and is active in various professional areas. Together we discuss life experiences, desires and the work that still needs to be done in order for TransInterQueer people to, finally, no longer be perceived as “the other” but rather as the enrichment of society that they are.
The TransInterQueer Salon is a collaboration between TrIQ TransInterQueer e.V. and the Volksbühne Berlin. The series aims to be more than just chats from the sunny side of the street: an expression of gender politics and a plea for social openness. Diverse lifestyles are by no means marginal—where minorities are usually located or assumed to be—but instead they're right in the middle of society. Normality means that every person is their own unique case.
As a social centre and non-profit association, TrIQ TransInterQueer e.V. has been active in politics, culture and research in Berlin since 2006, advocating for trans*, inter*, and queer people in Berlin and beyond. It offers psychosocial and legal advice as well as training and education, a transgender radio programme, spaces for additional group programming and a library.
