Fa (t) shionista!
Round and happy through life
A body positive evening with Magda Albrecht
On Saturday, July 14th, 2018, we cordially invite you to a reading and subsequent discussion with the author Magda Albrecht in our store.
Saturday 14th July 2018
Start: 6 p.m.
Location: Les Soeurs Shop
Magda Albrecht is an author, blogger, musician and does political education.
She gives lectures and workshops on the topics of body norms (especially thickness discrimination), strategies for self-empowerment and queer-feminist activism.
In January 2018 her book "Fa (t) shionista - Round and happy through life" was published by Ullstein Verlag.
Even as a six-year-old Magda Albrecht was annoyed by the comments of her fellow human beings, who talk disparagingly about her fat body. Today she wants to change the ideal of beauty, or rather: expand it, because it is not the many pounds but the prejudices that are more stubborn than expected: Anyone who is fat has failed, is lazy and uneducated. Why actually ?, the author asks herself after many years of uncertainty and since then she has no longer prescribed diet shakes, but rather a double dose of self-confidence. Because she has learned to counter the ideal of slimness: Proud Fatshionistas and the knowledge that diets bring nothing - except bad mood.
"... the author illustrates, in the best feminist tradition, the link between beauty regimes, discourses on self-responsibility, health policy and criticism of science." The standard
“Your writing style is casual, fun and smart. And quite incidentally, the readers learn everything that is necessary to see through the slimming mania, to strengthen the back and to free themselves from body images that only serve a whole diet industry and medicine. "- AVIVA Berlin
On this evening she will read and comment on passages from her book in a relaxed atmosphere over drinks & snacks in our store. Afterwards there is time for exchange and discussion.
And of course you can also purchase your personally signed copy on site!
