Beach Time – Queerness und Alter | with Detlev Schulz

The season kicks off with an evening created by Detlev Schulz: under the motto "Beach Time – Queerness and Age" we celebrate the crossing of different generations. Age is neither a taboo subject nor a stigma, but a part of queer life that affects all phases of life equally, even beyond the party. With the right drinks we create a night full of places of longing – it's beach time!

The QUEER BAR takes place in the garden of M.1 in Hohenlockstedt. With it, hosting will become a collaborative practice: each evening will be co-hosted by different persons. Under shifting mottos, special drinks will be served, tables decorated and themes discussed – thus creating an ever-changing space that invites everyone who is interested to come together, exchange ideas and celebrate together.

The QUEER BAR was launched last year as a project by Berlin based artist Paul Niedermayer as part of Agnieszka Roguski’s GOSSIP- programme. People from different generations and social milieus quickly came together, became friends, travelled from other parts of Germany or joined from the neighbourhood. In 2022, former guests will become co-hosts of the QUEER BAR: They will design the evenings and give them an individual perspective. They are united by the question of how queer people can come together in the rural area to create a shared, safe space that offers space for exchange and networking.

All interested people are welcome, regardless of age, skin colour and sexual identity – diverse and free of discrimination! The bar nights always start at 6 pm in the covered garden of the M.1. Admission is free and barrier-free.

The QUEER BAR is funded by the Ministerium für Bildung, Wissenschaft und Kultur Schleswig-Holstein and the programme Neustart Kultur der Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien (BKM).
