Product Description

Contributions by Bracha Lichtenberg Ettinger, Mika Hayashi Ebbesen, Marianne Heier, Mercedes Mühleisen, and Maxi Wallenhorst

A discreet, yet unapologetic, feminist reading of the past and present with a particular focus on deconstructing inherited notions of identity and gender. It seeks to examine the impact these have had on contemporary relational modalities in order to find new capacities to dissect the resulting interpersonal dynamics. There is a wish to pause automatisms that suffocate the mind.

« From the dusty shafts of an ancient quarry to the transgressive reattunement in metramorphosis, this book is a revolt against false separation. Mika says: Will you stick around long enough for us to hum together? Marianne says: Like a gasp in slow motion. Swoosh. Falling into modernity. Maxi says: You stand for how I, crucially, do not even know who I am talking to. Mercedes says: An endless string of mouths has shaped the story again and again. Wash off those goosebumps and listen. Bracha says: The artist in the matrixial dimension is wit(h)ness in com-passionate hospitality. »
