Arts and conversations with rioters and legends: The Netherlands and the world is familiar with several feminist and queer movements.

The first feminist wave was by the enslaved black women who revolted for their basic human rights and against the colonial state. Over the past four centuries, women (white and of colored) and queer people have taken to the streets en masse for various social and economic issues, from the right to self-determination to voting rights. For economic independence to sexual liberation. And when we talk about sexual liberation, in the West they talk about the 1970s. The so-called “fourth” feminist wave.

But to what extent can we speak of true sexual liberation when the right to self-determination is under pressure? Is there sexual liberation when heteronormative norms and nuclear family are seen as the cradle of society? What does this mean for queer and trans persons in this society? And how does sexual liberation relate to women and queers of color?

All of these questions and many more will be bared during the conversation with the legends.
