The ongoing struggle for equality
As Simone de Beauvoir noted back in 1949 in her controversial book The Second Sex, the time is ripe, after centuries of male domination, for a new discourse. One only has to observe the misogynist statements made by the current US-President to see that the struggle for equality is far from over. In an NTGent production, the German director Florian Fischer, presents To name herstory, a piece which examines when and where feminism began to take shape over the past century.
Gender differences and diversity have become hot topics in literature, science and the opinion pages. Women and minorities still experience social and cultural inequality. Based on literary work by authors such as Kathy Acker (Don Quixote) and Chris Kraus (I Love Dick), the studies of Julie Nelson (Beyond Economic Men) and the filmography of Chantal Akerman, Fischer investigates why ‘the other’ is so consistently pathologised. The piece will be performed by, among others, Lien Wildemeersch and Risto Kübar, two of NTGent’s permanent actors.
