lonely hearts by Irène Mélix & Vincent Schier:
For the 30th anniversary of Gerede e.V., the large collection of lesbian* personals from all over the world – the lonely hearts – which Irène Mélix has been cultivating since 2015, was expanded to include Saxon voices: From the attic of the Gerede, from the weekly mail of the GDR and from various online archives, covetous, hopeful, crazy, tender, depressed and confident voices are speaking up. They reveal not only something about their writers but also about the social and societal context. A newly created photographic work sees itself as a homage to the photographer Alice Austen and a contribution to the history of lesbian* visibility. The audio piece “lila lieder” (2018) is a cross-epochal encounter of queer and lesbian* characters in a lively bar, and in the lilac library of Blaue Distanz, fragments of the related research are shown.

LILA-X-BATH by die Blaue Distanz (Anna Erdmann and Franziska Goralski):
In the rooms of a former pub and bathtub in the district house, the focus is now on community care and queer physicality. In addition to a regulars’ table, an excerpt from the lilac library, and an exposure place, numerous locations open up the opportunity to dive into care needs in an exploratory way. The winding basement rooms give sweaty occasions to stay, to occupy oneself or to get in contact. Or, as a queer sauna advertisement once lured: “Enjoy with all your senses and discover new and familiar, exciting and relaxed things with us…”. We are looking forward to you!
