This performance delves into the concept of colonies as a metaphor for the female body, as famously articulated by Christopher Columbus: „Colonies are like the female body, and America is its nipple.“ Columbus’s perspective implied that colonies were considered uncivilized and needed to be civilized through conquest. This viewpoint symbolically represents the oppression and exploitation that many colonies and their inhabitants endured.

In this context, I also address the topic of oil, specifically as the material that exploiters are keen to extract from the Middle East, drawing a parallel between the historical exploitation of colonies and the modern-day exploitation of resources.


Empty Gestures Of Solidarity

Solidarity is defined by radical political action! In the face of oppressive systems and patriarchy, mere expressions of pity and theoretical discussions without action are nothing but empty gestures of solidarity.

when you are hurt by patriarchy, your comrades come together to support you, it is an incredibly powerful situation.
