LILA-X-BASE is a future queer-feminist space, that doesn't exist yet but reflects needs and visions from womxn from the past till today, ours included. We created a new advertisement for LILA-X-BASE. The design is based on archival footage like bar, club, communal gathering advertisements and announcements of activist groups found at Archives in LA, especially the June Mazer Archives.
These limited-edition T-shirts are individually numbered and digitally screen printed. Long-sleeve and 100% cotton, unisex sizing.
Created by „the blue distance“ : Anna Erdmann and Franziska Goralski from Germany. They have been working together as an artistic duo for 2.5 years. In their artistic work they are interested in queer ways of living and learning, lesbian realities, (digital) feminist perspectives, how to share knowledge and what does visibility mean in hierarchical structures like the current political one. They explore the influence of role models as same as stereotypes on the construction of female* identity. Are female* role models relevant to find ones place in society? What could it mean not to repeat given categories? What is the relation between strength and visibility? Finding gaps and spotting light on underrepresented decisions is totally important for them.
They spent 6 months in 2018 researching in Los Angeles about „Power of Place“ with a scholarship from the Germany Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
