What it's all about

Art Meets Empowerment: What kind of empowerment is needed for a person to be able to set boundaries?  Is there a connection between male dominance in traditional positions of power and the ability of women* to recognise and defend their own boundaries? In a walk-in installation, you can explore feminist questions about setting boundaries together with the artists from "Der kleine Container".

Why you have to come 

For four consecutive days, the 12.5 square metres of a wooden container will be transformed into an exhibition and experience space with creative texts, information and exciting audio and video installations for all the senses. You can decide again and again whether you want to sit back and relax or actively train your own self-empowerment.


The container offers two rooms, four walls and a party cabin, all under the motto: educate, empower and create visibility.

Please note

The event will take place outdoors, please bring appropriate clothing.

The installation will also deal with the topic of abuse of power, i.e. unpleasant situations can be described. If there are triggers that you would like to avoid, please write to us and we will clarify this in advance.

Empowerment workshop for FLINTA* people

Women support women.

In the spirit of Alice Walker: "Most people give up their power by thinking they have none"
We cordially invite ALL women* to join us in creating a safe space and practicing self-empowerment.
The workshop will take place in the Atelier-Raum in the Bürgerzentrum Ehrenfeld.
The room is accessible via a ramp and an elevator.
