Katja Bürkle / Carolin Emcke: Yes means yes and…

Katja Bürkle (Actress, Munich) reads an excerpt from the book "Yes means yes and…“ written by Carolin Emcke
GERMAN

Lothringer13 Halle

After the "MeToo debate“, how can you still think and talk about lust, power and equality?
Carolin Emcke aims to reflect on some of the questions that have recently been raised by the #MeToo debate. What images and concepts, music and practices shape our ideas of desire and lack of desire? What structures, patterns and norms exist into which men, women and everyone else have to fit? What skin colours and bodies in particular are forced into impotence and silence? How can violence be exposed and prevented? How can desire and lust be made possible? What forms of expression, spaces and alliances are required? In light-hearted, angry, poetic and melancholy miniature scenes, Carolin Emcke approaches the multilayered facets of sexuality and truth.
