Knowing is not a bounded or closed practice but an ongoing performance of the world.*

I would like to talk with you today about a feminism as an active, creative concept, which is not necessary connected with a strong woman subject, but could go beyond the limits of the human body. I treat the feminism as a starting point in questioning an anthropocentric position and as a part of a process of becoming an other. The feminism is here a vibrant experience, more like a phenomena, than a stabile essence, it is not one ontological truth, which could be reached, kept and protected. It is a a process of sensibilising for the world that is in and around me as a living creature.
I will structure the lecture around the terms:

equality

difference

body

performance

cyborg

phenomena

matter
