Warrior Women Series: Zoe Washburne // Seria Mujeres Guerreras: Zoe Washburne

 by Erika Jelinek versión en español abajo I know that the obvious choice for my first, very delayed REAL installment of the warrior women series would be the only petite blonde Slayer of my heart, Buffy. Which is why I’m going to start with someone else from the Whedonverse: Zoe Washburne, resident badass of the Firefly class freighter Serenity. So, who is this woman? Let’s take a hop skip and a time jump five hundred or so years into Joss Whedon’s vision of the future, in which Read more/Leer más [...]

She is a sex object; she is a saint; she is a man; she is a political discourse. She is all of these things, she is none of these things. And if she falls out of line, she is your problem.

“Lo que somos y lo que compartimos”: un montón de etiquetas // “What we are and what we share”: a lot of tags

Por Juli Estrada English version below El tema de la identidad, propia y colectiva, es producto de un proceso de construcción en el que, tanto lo que incluimos como lo que dejamos fuera, pasan a ser un elemento determinante de lo que somos. Tomás Vizo, un venezolano en sus veintitantos, explora en este proyecto fotográfico como la identidad se compone de etiquetas, halagadoras, amargas, buenas, malas, y a veces necesarias. “Mi nombre es Tomás Vizo, soy un internacionalista que estaba Read more/Leer más [...]

Europe’s most unusual hotel – the Grandhotel Cosmopolis in Augsburg, Germany // El hotel más inusual de Europa – el Grandhotel Cosmopolis en Augsburg, Alemania.

By Marielle Zill versión en español abajo This is the first entry of a short series on my time at the Grandhotel Cosmopolis in Augsburg, a ‘social sculpture’ in the heart of the city. I am a student of human geography and have chosen to write about the Grandhotel as part of my master’s thesis.

Not quite, although the Grandhotel does not differ from any other hotel in Read more/Leer más [...]

By Laura De Vos and Molly Matalon versión en español abajo The other week I went to visit my friend Rick in Amsterdam and he proudly showed me a couple of prints by Molly Matalon he just got in the mail.

Black Female Voices – Who is listening? // “Voces Negras Femeninas – ¿Quién está escuchando?”

By Laura De Vos versión en español abajo The New School set up a conversation between MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry and writer bell hooks, and named it “Black female voices – who is listening?” It is definitely worth your time to watch the entire video, but I did want to highlight some moments in the conversation that sparked something in me – something I wanted to think through more, or ask others about more, or were particularly insightful. So take these excerpts as an introduction Read more/Leer más [...]

Entrevista con Meghan de Punch // Interview with Meghan of Punch

Por/by Zully Morales Fotos por Laura De Vos English version below Para mí, cuando vas a un show lo último que debería importar es si eres hombre o mujer, o cuales son sus preferencias sexuales. No hay necesidad de asumir o generalizar. Una escena sin estereotipos sexistas y palabras ofensivas puede existir defnitivamente, podemos lograr esto con informarnos acerca de lo que el feminismo se trata y cómo puedes ayudar a crear algo positivo que puede cambiar la forma en la que ves al mundo Read more/Leer más [...]
