Reading “Spitzenreiterinnen” and installation “Men in Trouble” | Jovana Reisinger

Reading: Spitzenreiterinnen

16:30 – 17:30, Reading, Kulturgarten

Lisa can’t have children, is abandoned, freaks out. Laura is eagerly awaiting her wedding, the highlight of every woman’s life. Barbara is lost since becoming a widow, a little dog helps. Verena inherits a luxury villa with a lake view, she rises. Jolie is fired and becomes pregnant. Petra finds love and moves. Tina is very afraid and makes a decision.

In her second novel, Jovana Reisingers celebrates the women she names after women’s magazines. She points out the role constraints and violence to which women are subjected in our society. And tips, tricks and gender stereotypes are negotiated. It is a text about female rage and perseverance with partly wicked humour, but which never condemns its protagonists.

Screening: Men in Trouble (HELLERAU Edition)

14:00 – 22:00, Video installation, Kulturgarten

The six-part talk show Men in Trouble follows a presenter through the highlights and disasters of her own programme. Guests who are unwilling to talk, a director who is happy to let her down and, above all, the attempt to deal with the really big issues: Happiness, love, money, beauty, sex and faith.

In Men in Trouble, filmmaker Jovana Reisinger negotiates gender roles, patriarchal structures and power relations.
