The Weekly Event Guide

Hiroki Tsukuda, Indifferent portrait, 2011

It’s funny how I just had a couple of conversations about my trip to Japan in 2008 on the weekend and now when I started to make my research for the new event guide stumbled about this interesting exhibtion about a new Tokyo after the disaster. What else do we have in the guide? A sexy, queer bar night, rebel movies, slut parades, blitz revivals and fleamarkets. The week may start… after the jump.

The Slutwalk Berlin takes place at Wittenbergplatz starting at 15h. It sounds a bit like a parade for “easy” girls. But it is actually a political demonstration for emancipation and against gender clichees, abuse and discrimination. If you are a true slut after all you can still come!
