FEMALE GUERILLA SWARM

What does it mean to be not normal visibile in public space? what if we question public space and how we encounter and move in it? which room is accessible for whom and for whom not? what does it mean to be not "normal" visible or functioning in public space with our body? How are women* perceived in public space? how can women* reclaim the public space? We question, hack and change the evryday urban space. We feel, move, shake, talk, listen, explore and play alone, in dous and in groups. we are reclaiming the public space with our bodies back. based on hannah arendt, i see space as a process that is always embodied and brought to life through its relationships and interactions with all those bodies present and not present. therefore i understand the sensual bodily experience as another form of knowledge acquisition, focus body awarness instead of body oblivion, perceiving of the particular in the everyday and learning to trust and play instead of fear.
