︎ Concept






Sick & Tired of SPORT spectacles? Here is GEGEN OLYMPICS


SPORT is reduced to a hyper-competitive arena for conforming identities around nationalisms, brand loyalty and consumer drives. Its norms and regulations assert pervasive globalizing strategies to maximize profit and visibility, while forming a matrix of excluded consumers and controlling exploiters. Its resilience to external control, criticism and accountability renders all those who question its norms – queer. But Queers can take all shapes, colors and sizes including the sport body, mentality and communities. Queers are rendering the invisible visible, while questioning the obvious and assuming nothing! As they sexualize our bodies for media consumption, gender our sports for norms they feel adequate, We queer them back in questioning and performing. Move your body at GEGEN OLYMPICS.

FAST TRACK / SPEEDY BOARDING / PRIORITY

To avoid long waiting times and queuing at the door, we would like to ask you for some cooperation in order to let you access the club quicker and let us work fast
The cloakroom demands most of the time – this is why it would be fantastic if you could help us

1. The Wardorbe is Free. Please hang up your clothes by yourself. You will find coat-hangers in big clothes baskets on the LEFT SIDE, right after the entrance door.

2. You MUST leave your jacket/ overcoat in the cloakroom. Preferably also hand in your sweater/ pullover – the club is very well heated!

3. Hang up your sweater/ pullover on a coat-hanger and put your jacket/ overcoat over it. Please DO NOT CRAM anything into the sleeves!

4. Please store your valuables safely and make sure you close all pockets on your garments well. Please also zip, button, etc. your jacket/ overcoat on the hanger, so it won't fall off it.

5. Bags and similar items will be handled separately. You will receive an extra ticket for each item.

6. You can pick up something from your clothes and/ or bags at any time! The attended cloakroom is for free!
