Feminist training camp
The No play Feminist Training Camp took place in May and June 2016 in Berlin. The publication is an assembly of materials from the camp. It is an outcome of a collective process of editing and writing done by the work group – Annika Högner, Clara López Menéndez, Enna Gerin, Freja Bäckman, Merja Hannikainen, Vappu Jalonen, together with Bogg Johanna Karlsson – through transcribing audio recordings, remembering, negotiating and storytelling.
The radical right wing or what we consider neo-fascists are being legitimized in parliaments all over Europe, immigration has been made the scapegoat of the financial economic crisis, and fear and ‘security’, as understood by conservatives, seem to be the main political engines dictating the discourse. The alarming developments in the political landscape and the speed of those increased the urgency of working out what our feminist practices can do.
