8 – 10 December 2006, bootlab, Berlin

The Language of Resistance is an attempt to confront the dissonance within European Feminist discourses and establish a forward thinking agenda that takes into account the multiple discourses and histories of the past. As part of a series of events that have taken place in Graz, Austria, and Manchester, United Kingdom, the infinite Prologue continues. Rethinking how we view what has already come to pass and how we imagine the future – most importantly, analyzing the conditions for living and working in Europe today from a feminist perspective.
