RAW&FRESH. Blogging from City of Women

Del 9 al 17 de octubre estuve blogeando desde el Festival Internacional de Arte City of Women de Ljubljana, como coordinadora de la sección online del festival Coweb.

Estos son los textos publicados en la web de City of Women:

¿Por qué las mujeres son como los pollos y los pollos como las mujeres? Adivina. Desde su creación en 1997 el colectivo ciberfeminista SubRosa explora la relación entre biotecnología, feminismo y capital global.

Almost the Same by Julia Bardsley. Like the priestess of a sacred society, she initiates us in the secrets of the creation of the world. In the beginning, there was violence. The bodies of the dead animals, the bones and skeletons, the torture instruments, the blood in her mouth: the archetypes of dominance and destruction are permanently present to remain us that the power to kill was in the core of culture even before language.
