Handbook for a Privileged European Woman

Whether it’s sexual harassment or the glass ceiling: Jackie is aware of how bad and also how good she has it as a white European woman. With a decent amount of pussy power and the efficacy of postmodern Hollywood aesthetics, Jackie offers tips for the privileged and sometimes not-so-privileged life in the postfeminist patriarchy.

Das Spiel

Breaking with viewing habits in the world of football: No illusion created by the wide angle, but a focus on the referee. Together with Fedayi San, we can experience the ups and downs of a football match. This doesn’t only make us understand what it means to control the energy of a whole stadium with a single whistle, but also how reality and staging diverge.
