Sübkültur, Forum Phoinix, Kämmereigasse 9 1/2, Bayreuth
Bayreuth Academy: Working Group "Rural Futures"
Film-maker Ella von der Haide is present and will moderate the discussion.
Queer Gardening in North America examines how queerness is reflected in the horticulture, place making and poethics of LGBTQI* gardeners in North America. As part of a research project on queer-feminist ecologies and spatial planning, Ella von der Haide’s poetic and probing film examines how gardening can empower queers to develop their own ecologies. It is part of a longer series on community gardens, titled Another World is Plantable!.
Ella von der Haide is a German filmmaker, gardener, ecological activist, and spatial planning researcher from Munich. Her documentary film series on community gardens and their connection to social movements is called “Another world is plantable!” and features gardeners in Argentina, South Africa, Germany and North America (www.communitygarden.de).
