2nd conversation

present: Carol, Kathleen, Marie, Natalie

What is the In search of a feminist archive: a movement’s archive about?

it’s a matter of personal curiosity, necessity, a big need, urge, a hunger to point our sight on women’s pictures, stories

I was at a show and there were only men on stage, only men I went BZZZ

I can feel this male sight watching me from the inside: where am I, where are these things coming from?

I’m a very imagetic person
this is how i improvise

some images are automatic, I cannot avoid them I don’t want it, but I already did

how can I choose better?

Dance was always a way to watch women in a way that wasn’t allowed this eroticism, this sensitivity was pushed out of society

I’ve become more and more sensitive

archiving to become more and more sensitive, becoming more and more vulnerable to hurt, but also like peeling a skin off
I was always splitted in two between what I considered male and what I considered female

I’m hoping for more confusion, good confusion

maybe other ways to access my body

new expressions
observing how I can open new doors by confronting myself with these images
