About the project
Nanna Lysholt Hansen’s project Dear Daughter consists of a series of three performances documented on video. In Dear Daughter/Organic Cyborg Stories from 2013, she addresses her unborn daughter by mixing fragments of professor Donna Haraway’s essay A Cyborg Manifesto with her own thoughts on pregnancy and birth. Dear Daughter/Motherboard Theories of Evolution is a speech to the new born daughter. Text fragments of different origin is interwoven and combined in a sound collage on femininity, history, language and technology. The performance Dear Daughter/Anatomy of the Chthulucene is about sex and sexuality and links anatomic descriptions of clitoris with Donna Haraway’s concept of ‘the Chthulucene’. Dear Daughter/Anatomy of the Chthulucene has it's premiere the 2nd of December and will be accessible at ON THE GO after that.
