I felt alien my whole life, but I didn’t feel alien because of my gender. Other people made me aware of my gender ~ Patti Smith
”As someone that is interested in many things and therefore never specializes in just one thing. I am fascinated by people who really dedicate themselves into one subject. The determination fascinates me. The subject that Sevilay Maria Van Dorst herself chose is in my eyes one of many determinations. Not just her project but also the people in it and people are, in the end, who fascinate me the most”
For this evening Rosa van Wissen invites Sevilay Maria Van Dorst to share her project #myowngender with you.
What does gender mean to you? An easy question, isn’t it? Well… Not exactly. Because what might seem to be a simple case, hasn’t got a straight-forward a or b answer for many.
This night we explore the extensive grey zone that exists within sexes, we explore what does and – most importantly – doesn’t define gender among those who find themselves blurring the binary male or female spectrum.
