This week’s events at BR

At 7pm on Monday Feb 23 we’ll screen the 2014 film Ciutat Morta : Dead Citycartel-ciutat-morta_6

The film follows 800 people who illegally occupy an old movie theater in Barcelona in order to screen a documentary. They rename the old building after a girl who committed suicide in 2011: Cinema Patricia Heras. Who was that girl? Why did she kill herself and what does the city have to do with it? That’s exactly what the squatting action is about: letting everyone know the truth about one of the worse corruption cases in Barcelona, the dead city

At 7pm on Tues Feb 24 we”l be hosting a discussion on Sexuality and Gender in an Anti-capitalist Framework.

Come along for a rockin’ workshop about the construction of queerness under capitalism. Why is sexuality and gender regulated and disciplined by the state and the market? And where does identity end and politics begin?

Then at 7pm on Thurs Feb 26 we’ll be discussing the short text: “Anarchism – the Feminist Connection” as part of our regular reading group.

In the author Krnegger introduces people familiar with feminism to anarchism and the history of anarchy as a political movement and struggle. It serves as a good introduction for those looking beyond the limits of mainstream feminism to radical anarcha-feminist ideas.
