I AM NOT A FORTUNE COOKIE

Fri 29.06 - 18:30 // CLUB NIGHT, EXHIBITION OPENING, TALK // ACUD STUDIO
I AM NOT A FORTUNE COOKIE

Lets celebrate the happy ending of cultural appropriation, racism, fetishisation, and harmful stereotyping that people of Asian descent encounter. While we cant change the foundations our society was built on in a night, we can create a tremor, one dance floor at a time! We hope that this event will spark a series of events and conversations that allow us to comfortably educate ourselves of the issues of many minorities.

ABOUT
 
In April, an event named Happy Ending took place in Berlin. The event used an ancient erotic Japanese Shunga motif, promises of massages and (American invented) fortune cookies, and was hosted at a Vietnamese restaurant. This type of random, clumsy Asian stereotyping is offensive and harmful to the Asian community and is no way of celebrating culture. We decided to take this occasion and turn it into something positive.
