Die Choreographic Convention VIII, WHAT/SPACE:CHANGES/CULTURE, ist eine Versammlung von Choreograph*innen, Tänzer*innen, Performancekünstler*innen, Schriftsteller*innen, Forscher*innen, Kurator*innen, künstlerischen Leiter*innen und Produzent*innen, um sich zu treffen und über Themen rund um die Frage “Welche Art von Raum kann Veränderungen in der Tanzarbeitskultur fördern?” zu reflektieren.
Die Frage lenkt die Aufmerksamkeit auf einen notwendigen Diskurs im Bereich des Tanzes in Bezug auf Künstler*innen und Kulturschaffenden, die asymmetrisch von globalen strukturellen und sozialen Problemen betroffen sind, einschließlich, aber nicht beschränkt auf Fragen des Rassismus, des Abelismus, der Frauenrechte, der Rechte von Transgender, der Kriegsführung, der Auswirkungen des Kapitalismus und der anhaltenden Covid-Pandemie. Im Rahmen der Choreographic Convention wird auch die AG work culture des ZTB ihre Richtlinien zu einer nachhaltigen Arbeitskultur vorstellen.

The election touchstones about dance, Berlin 2021

Today, we are pleased to publish the election touchstones („Wahlprüfsteine“) initiated together with the network TanzRaumBerlin for the upcoming Bundestag elections as well as the elections for the House of Representatives in Berlin. Both elections will take place on Sunday, September 26, 2021.

The Wahlprüfsteine are our means of asking the parties standing for election for position papers on pressing cultural policy issues. We have received a response from all local divisions of the parties contacted by ZTB e.V. and Netzwerk TanzRaumBerlin – the SPD, CDU, Bündnis 90/Die Grünen, Die Linke as well as the Free Democratic Party. We would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for responding.

The TanzRaumBerlin network and the ZTB e.V. have jointly formulated five Wahlprüfsteine, each with two to three questions. These include topics such as the continuation and further development of initiatives launched for the “continuity of artistic work”, the “strengthening of decentralized infrastructure” and a “new central institution for dance”, but also the strengthening of the positions of the Round Table Dance („Runder Tisch Tanz“) and the further development and reorientation of funding instruments. We publish the Wahlprüfsteine and the questions in the appendix together with the answers of the parties.

Both Wahlprüfsteine and the responses have been originally formulated in German language. Attached you can find both also in English language.

The upcoming federal elections as well as the election for the House of Representatives in Berlin are crucially important for the further development of cultural policy in the state and the federal government. Please inform yourself about the positions of the parties. Form an opinion and participate actively in discussions. We will gladly accept your suggestions, ideas and demands in the future. Also contact the member of parliament responsible for your area and seek a discussion. And above all: Go vote!

( english speaking group)

(ENG)AG Work Culture was initiated in 2021 by Kasia Wolinska ( ZTB e.V.) and Mateusz Szymanowka ( Sophienseale) to facilitate discussions on the culture of work within Berlin dance scene and to develop tools and activities that would eventually lead to the improvement of how we work. Around 20 participants/ volunteers – dancers, choreographers, producers, dramaturges, curators and activists – joined forces in the frame of regular meetings throughout the year to examine the existing and (possible ) future working structures and relations that stem from those. In 2022 the group is aiming at development of the guidelines for the Berlin free dance that will be then presented to the community and further consulted. The foundational goal of this work is to support, promote and normalize good practices within the working environments – addressing problems of violence, (self-)exploitation, exhaustion and inequality within the scene.

 

 AG Tanz und Elternschaft

Dance and Parenthood Working Group is an association and initiative of dance professionals with the aim of improving the working conditions of dance professionals in parenthood. The Working group works in self-organized manner and on a voluntary basis. Since November 2020, the WG meets online once a month.
In exchange, we name and analyze existing deficits, disadvantages and existing barriers for dance creators in parenthood – in the dance scene and in the funding system – and we develop concrete proposals and approaches on how these can be remedied. We regularly invite cross-disciplinary guests from the scene and cultural politics and establish new networks with other actors and activists.
Working groups members (as of February 2021):
Claudia Garbe, Janne Gregor, Jenny Haack, Jasna Layes Vinovrski, Anja Kolmanics, Raisa Kröger, Heike Kuhlmann, Saskia Oidtmann, Steffi Sembdner, Maria Walser
