In early October 2020, Liebigstraße 34, one of Berlin’s last legalized squats, was evicted by over 1,500 police officers. Liebig34 was an anarcha-queer feminist house taking up an entire building block. The 30-year-old autonomous collective supported ideas of D.I.Y. and consensus, and provided a living space free from homo- & transphobia, sexism, and racism—residents could not be cis-men. The house included an Infoshop called “Daneban” stocked with books and pamphlets created by the international anarchist scene and a bar and performance space run by the XB collective, who also served affordable vegan VoKü (“people’s kitchen”) dinners once a week.
On February 13th we will screen It’s on Liebigstraße 34, a short documentary by Liza Lindgren and Siri Hedenström about the house as it was in 2006, in an online program that includes former residents of the house and a discussion about collective anti-capitalist spaces around the world. Proceeds will support the needs of the Liebig34 community.
** Presented by Elliat Graney-Saucke and Catalina Alvarez, in association with the Queer Zine Archive and Arts at Antioch College. **
