Das Goldene Buch
Feminist Zine Launch Party / Performances, exhibition, DJ set / Sa 9.9.2023, 17 Uhr
Das Goldene Buch is a project for women* with fragmented identities: worker, mother, wife, spouse, parent, politician, beloved, and friend. What is identity, if not one of the only things we can say is our own? But also, what is identity, if not something that other people constantly define for us? The work of being a "housewife" is deeply tied to different types of work. With this collective zine workshop, we aim to push back against practices of separation of home and society.
To explore this fragmentation, the participants developed an idea for a photocopy magazine in each workshop. The final zine, ‘The Golden Book' is formed by the collective efforts of many women, addressing professional, personal, and social aspects of identity. The project culminates in a celebratory final event with art, performances, and discussions, showcasing the documented workshop journey and the final zine publication.
