Opening Words, Drinks, Snacks, Music


We would like to celebrate with you! Saturday our exhibition FtM vs HIV – medical Lubewrestling opens in the unique spaces of Checkpoint Berlin.

Whoever has seen our shows of the last years – Future Spaces/Zukünftige Räume, Genitals on Trial, (…) – will notice that this small exhibition works differently. But we will discuss this with you on Saturday with champagne and canapés, e.g. in front of the wonderful photographs of Alexa Vachon.

Come in large numbers and enjoy the sound of DJ Dirty Daddy Don. We are also very happy to have Alexander Hahne joining us. He brings current words about the wrestling matches, tells us how the ‘HIV vs Transition’ battle is situated and why stigma and chlamydia have a rather cheerful relationship.

FtM vs HIV features highlights, photos, notes, objects, and quotes from a process on trans* & non-binary health on the mat and in practice, borne of those involved. As well after the vernissage, the exhibition is a good opportunity to stop by at Checkpoint Berlin and the ITB/inter* trans* Beratung.
