transmitters for short range radio broadcast.

OPEN CALL for participants to join informal round table strategy 
discussion on crises faced by the women living in Berlin in everyday 
life. Our topics include the precariousness of living and working spaces 
threatened by rising rents and displacement; the restrictive laws that 
limit and nullify the living space and movement for refugees and asylum

LaptopsRus in collaboration with reboot.fm presents the 4th edition of 
CrisisRus with workshops and performance at Alpha nova-kulturwerkstatt & 
Galerie futura in Berlin on October 25, 2014.

LaptopsRus is a self-organized open-participatory platform engaged in 
networking woman live performers. Prompted by the prolonging economic 
crisis as manifested in global Cacerolazo (dubbed global noise) where 
protesters bang on pots and pans while marching, we launched CrisisRus 
"NETWORK | RE:WORK" bringing together woman performers, homemakers, 
nomads, artists, activists to manifest woman work force and resilient 
capacity in these time of personal, political and economical crisis.

Alpha nova-kulturwerkstatt & galerie promotes the interaction of 
artistic, theoretical and political practices with an explicit 
gender-critical perspective.
As part of CrisisRus' workshop sessions and performance, we hold an 
informal round-table discussion (to be recorded) on relating the 
experiences and the coping with crises. Teaming up with Berlin-based 
free art radio, reboot.fm, crisisRus holds workshops on making DIY 
electronics and miniFM transmitters. Bring your defunct pots and pans, 
your soldering irons, your boomboxes, we provide parts and wires for 
electronic modification. Through mutual learning and teaching, we turn 
pots and pans into electro-noisemaking apparatus. The miniFM radio 
workshop demonstrates the possibilities of signaling crisis by 
short-range radio transmission. These workshops are free of charge. You 
get to take home your own DIY/DIWO devices.

The Workshop participants are encouraged to take part in the evening 
performance where we bring together sonic amplification, video documents 
and recorded conversation on crises and strategies for a grand electro 
Cacerolazo. The audience are invited to voice their own views with pots, 
pans and via megaphones. The live performance will be streamed live on
