If you would have to choo­se: Love, Play or Fight?

Fight. But of cour­se, by fight I mean: resist and know when to stop resisting.

What is it worth figh­t­ing for?

Vul­nera­bi­li­ty. Give vul­nera­bi­li­ty the space it needs. In us. In others. In natu­re. If we don’t fight for the vul­nerable space to exist, not­hing makes sense.

What was your last dream?

I dis­co­ve­r­ed that the­re was an extra room in my apart­ment that I had never noti­ced befo­re. I love that dream. Its reoccurring.

Are the­re any thin­kers that accom­pa­ny you at the moment?

Caro­lin Emcke – is an unbe­liev­a­ble obser­ver and thin­ker and never fails to touch upon the deeply human con­di­ti­on in her wri­ting (ever­y­bo­dy should read «Gegen den Hass» and «Wie wir begeh­ren», do yourself a favour and read them!).

Anne Dufour­man­tel­le – is an ama­zing mind. A phi­lo­so­pher and psy­cho­ana­lyst who spent her ent­i­re life wri­ting about risk and vul­nera­bi­li­ty and final­ly died, while saving two child­ren form drowning.

«bell hooks» – the war­mest, sof­test war­ri­or I’ve ever seen. And so many more. Also: «Lis­ten to Anthem» by Soap & Skin on the album From Gas to Solid/You Are My Friend. «Just when you wan­ted to avoid it, you alrea­dy hold it in your hand.»
