Gender-sensitive language - in-depth workshop for employees of the Kunsthochschule

Especially through language and images, gender binary inclusions and exclusions and norms about gender are constantly (re)produced. In the workshop for employees of the Kunsthochschule Kassel, we would like to address the possibilities and strategies of a gender-sensitive language: What does gender-sensitive mean? What possibilities are there to make language low-discriminatory and gender-sensitive? What is the difference between BinnenI, Unter_strich, Doppel:punkt and Gender*Stern? And why is it important to include diverse perspectives in language?
