Programme for Refugee Week

Monday 18 June 17h00 Ni to, ni sio – neither this, nor that: Gay asylum seeker in between Russia and “the West”
‘In Russia, gay people are understood as brought from the ‘West’: we are considered alien to the Russian culture and society, a threat to the ‘Russian universe’. This political condition of queerness breeds violence and mis-recognition. As we find ourselves in the ‘West’ fleeing from hostility and danger, we are also someone brought from the outside, cultural and social aliens. This talk is a personal story of finding myself in this position in between two confronting logics, neither here, nor there, in the space of nullified belonging.’
Evgeny Shtorn is a civil society activist, organiser and LGBT researcher from Russia. He worked at a think-tank back in Russia when he faced threats and had to flee. His interests include queer art and studies, literature and poetry.

Tuesday 19 June 14h30 Tuqa Al-Sarraj will talk about her childhood in Gaza, her experiences in the West Bank, and how her practice as an artist now Ireland is unfolding.
