Social Screenings: Ways of Seeing (part 3 & 4) (1972)

Datum: 
Saturday, 31 October, 2020 - 19:00 to 22:00

Berger offers a master-class in how to interpret images through a historical materialist lens. Famously, he did so in an extremely accessible, enjoyable way; for Berger, being able to expose the ideologies and the history of class struggles which shape ideology was a practical tool, and one that had to be available to the masses if it is to serve them.

We will watch episodes 1 & 2 which are each 30 minutes long.

Back in the Kitchen: Anti-Feminist Backlash in the Post-Communist Czech Republic ~ domof-mooy

Datum: 
Friday, 16 October, 2020 - 19:00 to 22:00

The majority of the political and cultural elites in Czech Republic of the 1990s and 2000s decided to mock any struggle towards gender equality. This is not to say that the previous Czechoslovak Socialist Republic was a feminist utopia - far from it - but these two decades, nevertheless, saw quite a vociferous attack on feminism and women (of any political orientation) in positions of power. The "attackers" included some previously persecuted intellectuals coming home from the West and labelling feminism as a new totalitarian threat.

Agnès Varda was living in California when the Black Panthers became everyday headlines after their leader was arrested for allegedly killing a policeman on October 28, 1967. Huey P.
