In the organizer's words:

I am malicious because I am miserable. This is what Frankenstein's monster says to his creator above the village of Chamounix in the Swiss Alps before he sets out to take revenge on him and on humanity - for his exclusion, his isolation, his othering. Susan Stryker writes in reference to this scene in her text My Words to Victor Frankenstein above the Village of Chamounix: May your rage inform your actions, and your actions transform you as you struggle to transform your world.

Our next event on May 23rd will be dedicated to the topic of Horror & Core. We will dive into the weird, creepy, gruesome, powerful and wonderful and ask ourselves: What can horror do that other genres cannot? What emotions, affects and conflicts can be negotiated when we break out of realism and take our fears to extremes?

We will listen to texts by Charlotte Krafft, Sonja M. Schultz & Kamala Dubrovnik. With Dr. Katrin Kämpf we talk about Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, why the monster is not so angry for no reason and what we can learn from it according to Susan Stryker.
