“The United States has long congratulated itself on being the world’s melting pot, but during a long, hot summer in coastal North Carolina, three young people will put that theory to the test. Our protagonist is Tillmann, a German vacationing in the States and corresponding with both his ex-girlfriend about the genesis of techno and an African American colleague about their research into the evolution of blues music. Over the course of the season, the trio’s discussions range from Mariah Carey to Ronald Reagan, from the Black Power movement to the legacy of Nazi Germany. And as a hurricane churns across the Atlantic, their exploration of how ethnicity, race, and gender are defined—particularly for America’s African and Jewish diasporas—will culminate in revelations about their own ethnic identities. Through the eyes of our three narrators, readers will explore the ideas of ethnicity and multiculturalism in our world, illustrated by humorous and poignant anecdotes woven into a single compelling narrative. Thomas Meinecke’s groundbreaking writing style is on full display here, as the writer-DJ has crafted this insightful novel with the same uncanny skill with which jazz and blues musicians create their improvisational styles”
Butlers hovedværk om forholdet mellem vores køn, vores begær og vores krop: (…) en dyb analyse af, hvordan vores kulturs ideer – om heteroseksuelt begær, om at det feminine er passivt og det maskuline aktivt, og om hvad en mand og en kvinde overhovedet er for noget – tegner og udstanser de skabeloner, vi bruger til at forstå den biologiske verden med. De skabeloner, vi bruger til at beslutte, hvilke kroppe der er betydningsfulde nok til at kunne genkendes og navngives og hyldes som naturlige og måske endda normale – og hvilke, der forbliver usynlige, undertrykte eller sygeliggjorte

What makes the work of the American experimental writer Kathy Acker so utterly relevant today, almost thirty years after her passing? The articles collected in this volume aim to provide answers to this question. Indeed, through studies of both Acker’s published and unpublished works, analyses of her writing process, and pieces blurring the boundaries between critical and creative writing, these articles map the writer’s body of works and weave webs the way the “Black Tarantula” would. Kathy Acker was part of a tradition of literary radicals and rebels of the 20th century avant-garde that flourished in the Counterculture and continued in the punk culture. Through acts of literary piracy and shock tactics, she unveiled and stood against techniques of domination and control. Indeed, she appropriated others’ texts, subverted genres and genders and thus challenged the rigidity of meaning and identity to allow them to fluctuate and flow. These texts confirm the central roles of both body and language in Acker’s works as spaces of friction between power and liberation and position the writer as a radical practitioner, a visionary.
American author Kathy Acker was one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. Working through an experimental and avant-garde tradition, she wrote numerous novels, essays, poems, and novellas from the early 1970s to the late 1990s. As a postmodernist, plagiarist, and post-punk feminist, she continues to inspire generations of writers, philosophers, and artists
