Reading group on Courtesane Poetry with Goda Palekaitė
Departing from embroidered courtesan poems in Palekaitė's fictional bedroom, we will dwell on the words of three magnificent women — artists, writers and sex workers — reaching us from different historical moments: Veronica Franco (1546-1591), Grisélidis Réal (1929-2005) and Virginie Despentes (b. 1969).
The artist will guide the conversation and propose a mode of speculative reasoning, weaving through the history of misogyny.
