On Thursday, November 28, 2019 at 6pm, collective reading of Monique Wittig's Les Guérillères (1969).
«Daniela Nervi, while digging foundations, has unearthed a painting representing a young girl. She is all flat and white lying on one side. She has no clothes. Her breasts are barely visible on her torso. One of her legs, crossed over the other, raises her thigh, so concealing the pubis and vulva. Her long hair hides part of her shoulders. She is smiling. Her eyes are closed. She half leans on one elbow. The other arm is crooked over her head, the hand holding a bunch of black grapes to her mouth. The women laugh at this. They say that Daniela Nervi has not yet dug up the knife without a blade that lacks a handle.»*
* Monique Wittig, trans. David Le Vay. Les Guérillères (Boston: Beacon Press, 1971), 66.
