FAQ

Who are we? 

Karada House is a queer collaborative art space that explores the boundaries of body, art and the multitude of interactions between them. We respect and celebrate the variety of gender expressions and identifications. Karada House is a body-positive open space based on collaboration, enthusiastic consent and respectful communication.

Karada House is a temporary space in time, momentarily residing at “The Stable” and will close its doors in March 2021.

What does Karada mean? 

Karada (体) is the Japanese word for body and translates in its literal form to “root of a person”. 

Please send your inquiry with the dates and an explanation of the purpose or renting our space to info@karada-house.de .

What does Karada House mean by using the terms “queer”,  “womxn”, “men*” & “mixed”?

For us “queer” describes the full queer spectrum and therefore any person who self-identifies as not cis-gendered and/or not heterosexual. 

For us “womxn” describes any person who identifies and lives as such. 

For us “men*” describes any person who identifies and lives as such. 

All categories, “queer”, “womxn” and “men*” can overlap but do not necessarily have to.

The term mixed indicates events that are open to queer individuals and LGBTQIA+ allies.

Who can come to the space? 

Anyone can come to our space as long as they respect that Karada House is a queer safe(r) space. We have general rules you can find here and house rules you need to follow. Events that are labeled as “queer”, “womxn” or “men*” events are only for people who self-identify as part of the particular group. If you are not part of the group and have accidentally purchased a ticket for such an event, please consult our refund policy.

What can I do in the space?
