• Selma Asotić: Madwomen and Their Mothers

    Lecture der Writer-in-Residence im Raum D / Q21

    Ort: Raum D / Q21
    Event in englischer Sprache
    Eintritt frei

    A famous black-and-white photograph taken in London in 1960 serves as a starting point for investigating the long-standing myth that writing and creative genius are masculine prerogatives.
    The main purpose of the lecture is to explore how literary history and literary canons erase the lives and voices of women, suppress the creation of an artistic matrlineage and systematically divest women of agency and creative power.
    The session will focus on women’s attempts to subvert the existing power dynamics, recover their lost female ancestors and reclaim their anger. Although it uses examples from different literary traditions, the lecture will specifically focus on modern-day Balkans and the establishment of new feminist platforms in the region - such as the magazine for feminist theory and art BONA - that hope to become sites of a new kind of literary community, one that is based on solidarity instead of oppression.
