Tashweesh (Arabic for ‘Noise interference’) is an interdisciplinary art festival that focuses on bringing together feminist movements, creating a platform for artistic practices and research concerning intersectional feminism in Europe, South West Asia and North Africa.

With stops at L'Art Rue in Tunis in September and at Beursschouwbourg in Brussels in early October, Tashweesh will come to Tanzquartier Wien from 7–15 October. The programme was primarily curated by Lebanese curator and artist Tania El Khoury and Tunisian curator and feminist activist Bochra Triki.

Audiences, artists and speakers from South West Asia, North Africa and Europe join a glocal conversation to imagine a feminist and connected society across seas and borders. Through performances, discussions, reading groups, screenings, concerts and club nights, audiences and participants seek common ground beyond perceived cultural boundaries, talking about stereotypes, queer and trans utopias, gender, bodies, public space, activist strategies and feminist revolutions.
