June 2011 Joe’s Garage program

Joe’s latent queer-ness spilled all over the agenda! Queeristan’s fund-raiser for the eponymous festival adresses issues such as privilege, power, and sex. Compitch will present women struggle in Chiapas to prevent the eviction of local communities from their land. And, either the summer comes or not, Joe is already hot: with an Allen’s comedy, the explicit Shortbus, and Gondry’s Human Nature, Joe’s Cinema is outrageously throwing its “Kinky June®” program. Then, on an other frontline of the struggle, squat explorators from the SQuatting Europe Kollective will share their discoveries, amassed from social centers all over Europe. And, as always, join Joe’s kicking revolutionnary initiatives: give-away shop, daycafé, squatting advice hour and Vokü. [you+us] run Joe’s Garage, so dare to engage into discus-sions with us and find out where you would like to help. Or mail us at joe [at] squat [dot] net

June 2011 Joe's Garage program
Zo. 05 juni Filmavond, 21uur, Shortbus (John Cameron Mitchell, USA, 2006, 101′)
A group of New Yorkers get caught up in their romantic-sexual milieu converge at an underground salon infamous for its blend of art, music, politics, and carnality.

Ma. 06 juni: Kitchen Punks voku 19uur, vegan food, no reservations, donations welcome.

Wo. 08 juni: Squatting, part of the social capital that everyone agrees that is needed in society or oppositional movement? A debate. 20uur.
It seems that squatting has a dual face. One face is that it represents things that many people left and right find valuable. These are mainstream goals such as self-help, participation, creativity, support for vulnerable people, conservation of neighborhoods, preservation of social housing. The second face is that of an oppositional movement. The dual face leads to tensions and confusion. The debate will be started off by short presentations by researchers/activists from the SQuatting Europe Kollective (SQEK). One presentation will cover the tensions and opportunities present in the Spanish crisis and movement scene, one will be a critique on the idea that squatting was a precursor of neo-liberalism and one presentation will take us into re-generations/ regeneration of self. Also the link between art(ists) and squatting will be discussed and the continuities between the sixties/seventies and now. http://www.acme-journal.org/vol9/SQEKeng2010.pdf
