Feminist collectives are taking to the shelves of a reading space. Come browse with us!

from books and magazines to catalogs and zines - the publications are brought to you by feminist collectives from Brussels:

Bicoli Collective is a self-run feminist communal library based in Ixelles.

Bye Bye Binary is a collective, a pedagogical experiment, a community, a variable typo·graphic creation workshop, a network, an alliance, working on gender-fluid and inclusive typography.
http://genderfluid.space/

Mophradat creates opportunities for artists from the Arab world through an inventive approach to funding, commissioning, collaborating, and gathering.

Fatsabbats creates spaces by and for LGBTQIA+, queers, women of color and their allies: cultural, social and care.

FAME festival is a new, multidisciplinary performing arts festival that seeks to encourage the discovery of new imaginary worlds that are more inclusive and more equal.

Psst Mlle is an intersectional feminist platform deconstructing the dance floor, standing up for representation and inclusion. They host a reading session in the kiosk on Tuesday the 4th of October from 18:00 to 19:30.

Lagrange Points promotes and celebrates the diversity of Arab culture's creativity and innovation, in Brussels, the Arab world and beyond. Through its network, dynamic team, and open programs, Lagrange Points brings new and unexpected voices alongside established artists, writers, activists, and researchers, connecting audiences and communities with works of contemporary visual arts, film, music, theatre, dance, literature and debates.

some online publications

Grimoire Fanzine is a Tunisian digital macabre fanzine. A disturbing, provocative content, between reality and fiction, between the visible and the invisible. 

Kohl Journal, a journal for Body and Gender Research, is a progressive, feminist journal on gender and sexuality in South West Asia and North Africa regions.

858. An archive of resistance is a unique collection featuring hundreds of hours of footage shot and collected in Egypt around the revolution now made available to the public. 

Mophradat’s online library publishes essays and thought pieces that are concerned with language, poetics, and feelings, some whimsical, some theoretical, and more.  

The Funambulist is a platform that engages with the politics of space and bodies. It’s hope is to provide a useful platform where activist/academic/practitioner voices can meet and build solidarities across geographical scales.
