Kathy Acker (1947-1997) par Élodie Petit, séance 28 !

Les Parleuses

Pour en finir avec une histoire de la littérature qui invisibilise et minorise les textes d’autrices et donc nuit à la littérature elle-même, chaque mois, les Parleuses organisent une séance de bouche à oreilles pour propager le matrimoine littéraire. Elles invitent une autrice contemporaine à se faire passeuse de l’œuvre d’une autrice du matrimoine. Chaque séance s’articule autour d’un atelier d’écriture, d’un atelier de lecture par arpentage et d’une performance inédite. Pour cette 28e séance imaginée dans le cadre du festival Hors Limites, l’autrice Élodie Petit imagine une séance dédiée à Kathy Acker, au lycée Feyder et à la médiathèque d’Epinay-sur-Seine.

Shirin reads Kathy Acker

women read

Name: Shirin Reading: Don Quixote, Kathy Acker Why did you want to read this? To me Kathy Acker’s writing represents possibility. Her work taught me that everything is possible: rules can not only be bent but forgone entirely. Acker’s stories are deeply rooted in our violent heteropatriarchal capitalist reality, but often veer toward an oneiric dimension which I like to think a reminder to wield the powerful gift of imagination to create new, collective-oriented, love-filled futures. Don Quixote is no exception. The famous knight is now a woman who sets to save the world by looking for love. Since I first discovered Acker’s work many years ago, I’m almost constantly in the process of rereading her writing.  How did you record yourself? With a microphone and my laptop at my desk on a Sunday afternoon while staring at the bookshelves (books apparently help reduce echo more than being inside a closet does).

The Spice Girls and Kathy Acker


In 1997, legendary experimental writer Kathy Acker was sent by The Guardian to interview The Spice Girls. Acker, who emerged from the New York punk scene, was the author of Blood and Guts in High School, a work so extreme it was banned in several countries. The Spice Girls were at the height of their superstardom, with a number of chart-topping hits around the world and about to make their American television debut. What happened when these two seemingly incongruous artists met? Where did the worlds of Kathy Acker, whose work was drenched in sex and shock, intersect with the ‘Girl Power’ ambassadors and teen idols The Spice Girls? Hosted by Hayley Campbell. Produced by Dale Shaw.
