March 8 is an official holiday in Berlin for the first time this year. On the occasion of International Women's Day, let's celebrate a femininity in solidarity: a femininity that goes beyond the generally recognized »biological feminine« and includes those who define themselves as female.
Fe/male Flavours visitors can expect a creative program of art, performance and culinary stimulating all senses.
An evening dedicated to self-determined bodies, sensual pleasures and individual sexuality - femininity to hear, see and taste.
While amateur chef and Brazil enthusiast Carolin Dandaras bakes a feminist version of Brazilian cheese bread for the guests, Mara Klein's photographic series »The Cycle Diaries« artistically stages the female cycle.
The art installation »WHAT'S LEFT OF / the invisible city« by Aurora Kellermann invites visitors to experience snapshots of the lives of Berlin sex workers.
In literary forays, the erotic reading and music series PORNO UND PIANO takes us from the famous ménage à trois between Anais Nin, Henry Miller and his wife June, along the hidden parts of the female pleasure organ to the evolutionary history of the vibrator.
Drag artist Judy LaDivina and performer Amelia Emma Forrest present a culminating narrative of compassion, urgency and recognition.

The Cycle Diaries by Mara Klein (photo series)
The photographic series The Cycle Diaries is a scientific-poetic exploration of the female cycle. From the medical laboratory to the photo studio: Mara Klein has microscopically examined the flora of the vulva and created fascinating photographic works from it, which in their delicacy are reminiscent of Japanese cherry blossoms.
What's left of / The invisible city by Aurora Kellermann (installation on sex work).
In one room 250 places of sex work come together: Created on a tour across Berlin, snapshots visualize brothels, massage parlors, sex cinemas, erotic clubs and street bars. An abstract mapping, an invisible city map of Berlin emerges. Aurora Kellermann interviewed Berlin sex workers and, in collaboration with Jasmine Guffond, assembled the conversations into a multifaceted composition.
Who is she by Amelia Emma Forrest & Judy LaDivina (Performance).
Drag artist* Judy LaDivina and performer* Amelia Emma Forrest present a narrative of compassion, urgency and recognition. A powerful performance about female seeing and being seen in an everyday life dominated by male dominance. Music by Ampfer, Innocent Heretic, Marie Davidson & Shy Visuals by Charis Boon Films Languages English, Hebrew & French
Porn and piano
Behind the pleasurable-sounding title lies a unique combination of text and music, discourse and sensuality, role-playing and social analysis. The musical reading series Porno und Piano interweaves porn dialogues with theoretical texts and works by modern poets and thinkers to create literary collages - framed and spiced with new, experimental live music. Excerpts from classics of world literature and lyrical works of past eras are read, as well as anonymous everyday notes and pearls of pop culture.
