Words Collect in My Mouth; Conversations on Intimacy and Repair

For DaDaFest International 2020 artist Alexandrina Hemsley compiled a publication drawing together elements of her disability and social justice led enquiries of the past five years.

The collection of texts and images stem from the prompt, ‘How does one (individuals and communities) return to intimacy after experiences, or within the aftermaths of violence (systemic, institutional, personal, intergenerational)?’ Alongside Alexandrina, the publication brings together several pieces from the following artists, activists, facilitators, researchers and practitioners:

Lateisha Davine Lovelace-Hanson
Nad Ma
Nina Mühlemann
Noa Winter
Oshilaja Hemsley
Raju Rage
Rebekah Ubuntu
Vijay Patel

Themes of creativity, connection, love, rage, access, decolonisation, repair and future speculations emerge through these collective voices.
