Queer/Feminist Rap Lab with Marina Shamova

Queer Rap Lab is a liberating practice with text, voice, sound, and performative presence. MC-ing (poetry) is the process of clarifying one's position, detecting conflict, the practice of social artistic expression through word and music.

Despite the fact that hip-hop culture has historically supported discriminated groups, the lyrics are often full of sexist, homophobic, transphobic, militaristic content. Queer & feminist issues in hip-hop remain insufficiently visible. Therefore, here rap is considered as an inclusive format for musical and poetic expression.

The workshop will be led by Marina Shamova (they/them), a Russian interdisciplinary artist, activist and one of the founders of Techno-Poetry collective.

The form will close for registration
