Via BigBlueButton we would like to introduce ourselves briefly, we are looking forward to questions and a round of exchange with all those who are there and want to sip a digital coffee with us!

WLINTAQ* only ( CCCC wants to offer women, lesbians, inter, nonbinary and trans* people an open, cis-men free space, which can be shaped according to our own rules and needs.)

Say bye bye to HFBK Gallery for one semester and welcome Cake & Cash’s feminist office and research lab.

That's the plan

Phase 1, winter semester:

Feminist office @ HFBK Gallery: Collective preparations for summer semester are made visible. The focus lies on theory and research based work. Public lectures/ workshops take place irregularly. WLINTAQ*  people are more than welcome to participate as non-collective members with different active roles: Give lectures for us and others, come and talk about works/conflicts in classes/…, bring friends, share ideas, develop projects together.

Phase 2, summer semester:

Feminist gallery curated by C&C, with works by WLINTAQ* HFBK students. Several exhibitions and accompanying program.

Important: C&C host the gallery for one semester and try to offer a framework for WLINTAQ* students of HFBK, to work, discuss and collaborate in a safer atmosphere.

As of now, C&C do not include new collective members, but are open for collaborations.

HFBK Graduate Survey

Studying art - and what comes next? The clichéd images stand their ground: Those who have studied art either become taxi drivers, work in a bar or marry rich. But only very few people could really live from art – especially in times of global crises. The HFBK Hamburg wanted to know more about this and commissioned the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Hamburg to conduct a broad-based survey of its graduates from the last 15 years.

How political is Social Design?

Social Design, as its own claim is often formulated, wants to address social grievances and ideally change them. Therefore, it sees itself as critical of society – and at the same time optimizes the existing. So what is the political dimension of Social Design – is it a motor for change or does it contribute to stabilizing and normalizing existing injustices?
