Feminist DIY Kick Off Workshop in Frankfurt

A fine 4 days workshop in Frankfurt has ended with a fun spontanious noise instrument concert at the Kulturwaggon. We had a long discussion if non-experts should go on stage or not, but were all glad we did. The participants were students of the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Offenbach and got addicted to playing with circuits in no time. I hope we all stay in touch! Here some photos of the workshop and the link to the lecture as well as the performance:

Feminist DIY Workshop

The workshop in Berlin was pure divine fun – many, many people got interested in our group and it was booked out already 3 weeks in advance.

There was a journalist from Berlin’s TAZ and a Missy Magazine writer participating and the guy who makes the Arduino blog took an interview. He promised to add the tag “arduina” to the arduino website. I think, we should all post our thoughts on the arduino forum more, to start a discussion on these issues.

A journalist from dpi magazine in montreal took part in the workshop and will write about us. Also a dutch online magazine took an interview and the karlsruhe institute of technology as well as the Frankfurt visual arts department of the Goethe-Universität would like to host mz baltazar’s laboratory workshops.

I also gave a lecture at the panel Access Denied – DI_Yourself

Carolyn Guertin (ca), Stefanie Wuschitz (at), Franca Formenti (it)
Verena Kuni (de)

The lecture was on hackerspaces and women only groups within these frameworks. Here are some pictures from my slide show:


FM4 wants to do a radio report about mz baltazar’s laboratory, so they might even come to one of the next sessions. however, i really look forward to our linux (ubuntu) install session! if you want to change the operating system on your computer, please make sure to make a backup of all your data in advance! so i hope i see many of you on the 9th of february at 7pm at museumsquartier!
