SUCH A LITERARY GIRL STATE OF LIFE

8/5 Euros incl. admission to the exhibition
No booking needed
On the occasion of the exhibition Female Remedy, the authors Claire Finch and Rosanna Puyol will read from their current works.
Claire Finch will present their new experimental text project “Wormfuck Fuckcave” and read excerpts from their forthcoming publication “Baise moi Judith“: An anachronistic epistolary exchange including democratic theory, gender studies, and dildos, where love and the void question each other in action.
Rosanna Puyol will read from her poetry collection “D’l’or”. Based on conversations with friends and artists, her texts explore artistic processes as well as conversation as a form and starting point for collaborative writing.
