Látur Medusu (paperbook)

Hélène Cixous

You do not arm yourself,

you do not gird yourself with

walls like he does,

you do not protect yourself as “carefully”

against pleasure. Even if

the phallic illusion generally

has ruined good relations,

the woman is never far from

“the mother”. There is always at

least a residue of

the good milk from mother

left in her. She writes

with white ink.


See the KVF clip from 27 February 2018 about the theatrical piece “Látur Medusu” (Medusa’s Laughter).
