Vortrag/Lecture: Nadine Hartmann – Perspectives on Liminality and Transgression

Vortrag mit Nadine Hartmann am 31. Januar 2020 im Rahmen des »CTM Festival for Adventurous Music and Art«, Berlin.


Why does Georges Bataille, philosopher laureate of transgression, claim to “think like a girl?” Why does Gilles Deleuze propose a process of “becoming-minor” stating that “it all begins with the young woman?” These are but two examples of attempts to evoke practices of diminution and reduction of subjecthood which unfolded in 20th century philosophy—often following traditions of mystical askesis. But why and for whom is it desirable to be a liminal subject? Why does the girl embody this ideal? And what do the girls have to say about that? With the help of Lewis Carroll’s Alice and Chris Kraus’ anorexics, Nadine Hartmann wants to understand where the girl stands in the zone of sexual difference and what phantasies of escaping gender identity she conjures.

Neben Nadine Hartmann werden Andreas L. Hofbauer und Edna Bonhomme Vorträge zum Thema ›Perspectives on Liminality and Transgression‹ halten. Moderiert wird die Veranstaltung von Lisa Andergassen.
