ABA NAIA (Kysy Fischer, Rafuska Marks, Teija Vaittinen)
ABA NAIA (Kysy Fischer, Rafuska Marks and Teija Vaittinen) is an international, Berlin-based collective created to investigate female comicality, as well as to draw attention to themes such as feminism, gender, heritage, sense of belonging, and the decolonization of the body. Some of the questions currently guiding our artistic research are: how can women produce comicality through their sexuality? What does our concept of post-porn clowning look like? Where is the border between comicality and awkwardness? How far can a woman go with a certain action?
