Here comes the glowing Supersour Bubblebrew Closing Party of Magic Cells, the part 1 of the Bâtard Festival 2023.
After enjoying a fair enough circulation of spells, cells, and bacteria, what’s better than throwing one of our legendary closing festivities?
For the occasion, we are hyper excited to show off and be received by our shiny hosts, Le 125 by Artist Commons (Troonstraat, 125 – 1050, Elsene).
The party will start at 22.30 and end at 03.00.
Let us introduce the Avengers of the Night, who will spread their master-tracks all over La Salle des Fêtes. LINE-UP :
Highly Important: Despite its light and kitschy title, the Supersour Bubblebrew SERIOUSLY expects everyone to take responsibility in keeping the safest possible space. Be careful with others’ boundaries, bodies, and bubbles. Better to check twice than not, listen to sub-text, etc, etc, etc. If anyone or anything makes you feel unsafe or unwelcome, the Bâtard’s team and allies are willing to help you change the situation.
Tickets are sold separately (pre-sales or at the door):
The show on the first evening (15th April) is a separatistic evening for people of the global majority/BIPOC. So please only book that evening if you identify with those terms. The show on the 16th of April is open for all. ---- We, Adam and Amina Seid Tahir, see how the terms BIPOC and people of color are less fortunate in their attempts of combating white supremacist andimperialistic ideologies, since they form in relation to whiteness (those ”not of color”) and therefore keeps whiteness as the norm. We rather use the term people of the global majority since we aren’t interested in identifying in relation to whiteness or white supremacy. ---- The term Global Majority was coined by Rosemary Campbell-Stephens. ”Global Majority refers to people who are Black, Asian, Brown, dual-heritage, indigenous to the global south, and or have been racialised as 'ethnic minorities’.” 1 This term was created for people of the global majority to not have to identify in relation to whiteness and to emphasize the fact that these groups make up the majority of the world’s population, specifically 80%. ---- The reason for choosing to use the term BIPOC despite this, is because we’re aware that the term people of the global majority hasn’t received as widespread attention yet. And since our main goal for this showing is to welcome our siblings from the global majority for a showing without the presence of a white colonial gaze, we choose to use the term that seems to be most commonly used in this festivals locality. ---- 1.
