Berlin is known to many as one of the best clubbing cities in Europe. Home to techno, free-thinking, radical expression and inclusivity - but how inclusive is it really?This episode explores the “Politics of the Dance Floor” through the work of Transmission, a networking-platform that amplifies the politics and history of club and rave culture. Founders, Sarah Farina and Dr. Kerstin Meißner, share how they have built a community through critical conversation. A community that enables social justice and works to create safe and inclusive dance floors for everyone. Sarah, a DJ, and Kerstin, a researcher, have looked to the intersections of academia, activism and music culture to create cultural discourse around the social issues within nightlife.This episode is brought to you by Bear Radio and sponsored by Lingoda.
