8M: Der große feministische Streik. Konstellationen des 8. März (2018) [German]

25 April 2019, dusan

“#VivasNosQueremos, #NosMueveElDeseo, #NosotrasParamos – Wir wollen uns lebend(ig). Uns bewegt der Wunsch. Wir Frauen streiken. So gelangen die Slogans neuer feministischer Bewegungen aus Lateinamerika seit 2016 als Hashtags zu uns. Die hier versammelten Texte untersuchen die Genealogien dieser vielfältigen Bewegungen, die aus einem lauten Aufschrei gegen blutige, regelmäßig ungestrafe Feminizide entstanden und schließlich als internationaler feministischer Streik 2017 und 2018 massive Dimensionen erreichten. Die Mitte dieses Streiks bildet allerorts die entscheidende Frage, wie Sorgearbeit bestreikt werden kann. Ausgehend von einem tiefen Überdruss gegenüber allen Formen machistischer Gewalt tritt der Streik hier als sorgfältiges Flechten eines gemeinsamen Gewebes, als gemeinsames Organisieren und Lernen auf, aber auch als unmissverständliche Warnung: Mujeres en huelga, se cae el mundo – Wenn die Frauen streiken, zerfällt die Welt.”

“The first collection of conceptual writing by women.

Conceptual writing is emerging as a vital 21st century literary movement and I’ll Drown My Book represents the contributions of women in this defining moment. The book takes its name from a poem by Bernadette Mayer, appropriating Shakespeare. It includes work by 64 women from 10 countries, with contributors’ responses to the question—What is conceptual writing?—appearing alongside their work. I’ll Drown My Book offers feminist perspectives within this literary phenomenon.”
