COLLECTIVE HEALING & GRIEVING A LA ARABESK

For a few hours, the southern block is transformed into a Kuires X Gazino with arabesque music, video installations, dance and spoken word performances and Turkish delicacies.


Arabesk music originated in Turkey from the combination of Turkish folk music, Arabic elements and Western pop music. It became popular with labor migration in the 1960s. The content is often about heteronormative love, which this event opposes and celebrates LGBTQI*+ artists*. Arabesk Musik unites different communities in which men are allowed to cry, trans artists are accepted and emotions can be processed together.


All feelings are welcome on this evening full of creativity and diversity. Melancholy texts about lovesickness, longings and worries are combined with music, video installations, film excerpts with queer content and performances.
