Feminist performance art in East Berlin: Mad Kate at Monster Ronsons!
I was at Monster Ronsons last week for a double feature of performance artist Mad Kate and my friend Dawn’s band Das Fluff.
Mad Kate played the stripper pole, using a sensor on the bottom of their platform shoe. It was very, very cool. You can follow Mad Kate on twitter here, Instas here, and their website here.
The dance floor was full of beautiful young queer folx.
The joy, fury and strength of young queer people in Berlin! They are living their way into a better world, and it sustains me.
Thank you, always, to my Patrons on Patreon, who make it possible for me to make this documentary art of queer Berlin.
