WHO HAS THE POWER TO HATE? - Exploring a political feeling

Hate, that grating, corrosive emotion, is omnipresent. It roars from the streets or whispers in bourgeois hostility. It grows in parliamentary speeches, crossheads and children's rooms - and certainly not in secret, even if many would like to condemn it there.

Şeyda Kurt brings hatred out of its banishment and sets out on the trail of its resistant potential. In doing so, she is primarily interested in people as subjects of hate in a capitalist, racist and patriarchal world. Who are they, these haters, and from which power relations do they come? Who is allowed to hate at all and who is not? Which feelings paralyze, which feelings help not to freeze, and to move on and on towards a more just and tender society?

Relentlessly, whimsically, and beyond self-righteous indignation, Şeyda Kurt explores hate from its creative side: as a category of empowerment that can pick up and mobilize people in their innermost discomfort, as a resistive handiwork - and not least as a serviceable emotion that helps us to feel our way in an ocean.

The reading will be moderated by Fatima Khan (author, artist, curator and presenter). Fatima is the initiator and co-founder of q[lit]*clgn, the first feminist literature festival in Germany.
