NEW RUSSIAN FEMINIST POETRY
Galina Rymbu, Oksana Vasyakina, Elena Georgievskaya, …
F LETTER assembles the feminist poets who have palpably changed the Russian language over the last decade. Against the backdrop of state violence and oppression, this is electric dissent in pursuit of a democratic, egalitarian future. A lexicon for revolution worldwide. But this anthology's brilliance lies in its rhythm, energy, and depth of emotion - in its universal relevance rather than applied politics. As Eileen Myles writes of its verse in a foreword to the work, "there are lines like a curse that yodel radiantly out of the toothy mouth of the curser...lines that are just so fucking metonymic in their grace...I've been invited to witness. To smell the crowd and be charged by history."

Barbara Hammer Women I Love
The book will e published in spring 2022
Fiona Liewehr, Barbara Hammer
Barbara Jean Hammer (1939-2019) gilt als Pionierin des queeren und feministischen Kinos und war eine der ersten Filmemacherinnen, die sich ausdrücklich dafür einsetzte, lesbische Realitäten sichtbar zu machen. In experimentellen sowie dokumentarischen Filmen, Fotografien, Zeichnungen, Collagen und Performances beschäftigte sich die Künstlerin mit der Auflösung der vorherrschenden Geschlechterrollen, der lesbischen Identität und der Sexualität. Hammers Arbeit beleuchtete Tabuthemen wie Altern, Krankheit und Tod.
b o r n is a book about nudity and silence. A collection of spontaneous photos of skin as nature, empty spaces and light. A nonchalant chronicle of texts that document a life, a young perspective on actuality.
Elements Of Vogue
Sabel Gavaldon, Manuel Segade (Eds.)
Bodies are agents and products of history. Bodies are history made flesh, but they are also primary tools for understanding the past, present and future. History is a choreographed sequence of gestures that makes bodies intelligible to each other. Every gesture is a link in a chain binding us to gender, race and social class. Gestures solidify into identities. They enact identities that become natural through the systematic repetition of identical gestures. And yet, a pose does more than that. Posing means becoming aware of how a body makes history. “To strike a pose is to pose a threat”, wrote Dick Hebdige referring to the meaning of style in youth subcultures. That’s why it’s important to trace the history of dissident gestures, to trace the genealogy of poses that are bold enough to confront the norm. This modality of performance may be described as radical because it opens up a space for imagining other possible bodies and futures. A radical performance invokes subjectivities for which no name yet exists and social choreographies that are still to come.

Window is Alexis's first full length novel in the form of a truelife vignetted memoire. Written from a swivel chair in Crown Heights, the stories meander through Alexis's surreal memories of growing up gay in Kansas, grasping for substance in fleeting hookups, gaining possessive rein on his powers of seduction (often via texting), and abusing them in San Francisco. Accompanied by photos from his voluminous archive, these stories are a full, and blurry, portrait of searching for "true love" in a multitude of disposable romances.

Nazi Knife #10 – Puro Ódio
Hendrik Hegray, Jonas Delaborde, Romaric Sobac, …
Started as a xerox zine, a saturated compilation of drawings done by amateurs, musicians or comics authors, Nazi Knife explored, in its more recent issues, some more singular editorial approaches: the publication seen as a library, as a collection of motley elements, where raw materials, symbolic references or cultural products could be combined, or as the visual repetition of few fetishistic obsessions, modulated by an architecture of filters, quite opaque to say the least.

Looking at cartographies through sexual dissidence facilitates a process of resignification that speaks in other terms, deals with other territories and breaks away from the hegemonic ideals of cartography.
