Female migrants and sex work

Monday, 05/07/2010, 7 pm
With: Kim Carrington, Marissa Lobo (Maiz, Linz), Betty / Sexyshock (Bologna)

Sexyshock is a communication laboratory open to women and a public space for discussion and reflection. Sexyshock is thus a research project, but also a place. A public space where it is possible to come together, archive material and a laboratory on sexuality. It was born within an autonomous space (the squatted Teatro Polivalente in Bologna). Today Sexyshock has its base within the Betty&Books (Via Rialto 23, Bologna), a shop that sells sextoys, books, collectable and designer objects that was born out of the synergy between Sexyshock and the Ibiscus cooperative.

With: Javier Toret (Barcelona)

Javier Toret will propose a workshop dedicated to the schizoanalytic practice created by the theorist and therapist Felix Guattari. Little known in Italy, schizoanalysis has developed in the Seventies as a critical alternative to traditional psychology and psychiatry. Today it represents an important conceptual reference in countries such as Spain, Brazil, Argentina, not only in the area of the “psy” disciplines, but also by inspiring artistic and theoretical practices which explore the body, subjectivity and desire.
