Erasure is the practice that makes certain people and/or groups invisible, eliminating or deleting their existence: their history, life stories, suffering, and achievements. The Romans called it damnatio memoriae—“condemnation of memory,’’ punishing individuals by destroying every trace of them. Examples of erasure are women, minorities, those who lost wars, the queer, the poor, and lesbians—all casualties of condemnation. *
Erasing lesbians, Sarah F. Pearlman (2016)
No More Erasers is a 3 days summerschool bringing together different ways of presenting, launching, sharing crossings of publication and performance, choreography and more activated, feminist, strategies of thinking design, editing and textual production.
+ Roxanne Maillet (http://caveclub.cc) and Auriane Preud’homme will host a workshop focussing on the documentation of performances / happenings / talks / lectures, with a strong desire to keep a sense of spontaneity and subjectivity in the translations. They are looking for all the discrepancies between a script, the performed action, to its documentation, with all the contexts and surroundings put at stake during this translation. Orality + womxn will be their main material to try out new forms of publishing.
+ A Slowww two-day launch of the new edition of This Container zine edited by Chloe Chignell and Maia Means on choreography, writing and feminism.
