A CITY WALK WITH SAM HULTIN
Saturday Sept 28 at 3:30 pm
Welcome to a city walk that follows in the footsteps of the Swedish trans pioneer Eva-Lisa Bengtsson (1932-2018). We move from the first club of the 1960s for transgender people on Östgötagatan – to actions of the Lesbian front and the construction of women’s houses – and to the community of the Golden Ladies and Jerry’s women’s club. Based on a personal portrait, a picture is drawn of Stockholm’s LGBT history, a vital community and at the same time both political and personal struggle.
The city walk is led by Sam Hultin, an artist who often works with performance and video based on his interest in queer history writing and the idea of art as a suggestion of possible future. Often, their work connects personal stories with larger social and political structures. Following Eva-Lisa’s death in 2018, her unique archive is filled with photos, letters, books, membership letters and magazines collected by Sam Hultin. The intention is for the archive to be made available for research through the QRAB – the Queer movement archive and library in Gothenburg.
The walk is arranged in collaboration with Stockholms Kvinnohistoriska.
The city walk starts in Björns Trädgård and takes about 1,5 hours. Remember to wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water!
This event is FREE. No registration is required.
