March 19, Kampnagel, Hamburg.

 A few months ago when we put this GM program together we didn't know how much the world would change, now with the uprisings in Tunisia, Cairo, Jordan, Bahrain, Saudia Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Libya..
marks the amazing end of twin towers terrorist era. Divide & Rule does not work with a real media that releases news instead of a blanket to justify inhumane treatment of populations.
Girl Monster sends strength & courage to those in the struggle, and thank you, the power shift is immense and can be felt, even if our lame governments wing on about immigrants and blame each other for having too close contacts to Qaddafi.

Gudrun Ankele: author of Absolute Feminism, Orange Press (2010) and lecturer at the UDK.

Anetta Mona Chisa & Lucia Tkocava: performance artists living in Prague, they work with social models like the pyramid structure & build a human pyramid. Another piece we screened at the last Girl Monster was a video with a fortune teller, using Karl Marx, Das Kapital as source material for their predictions.
They will be representing Romia at the Venice Biennale this year.

A.L. Steiner: Photographer/video artist & activist of W.A.G.E
will be making a video to be screened for the first time on march 19th.

On june 1st she will be at GM in person along with A.K. Burns & screen an amazing full feature arty & XXX porno, Community Action Center, right before their screening at the TATE Modern.

Dat Politics: from Lille, living in berlin will give a concert. Very special electronic, fresh & powerful!
