The Virtual Club of Dangerous Women is a disembodied conspiratory incorporation of individuals who share savage dreams, disruptive visions and fierce imaginaries of female violence against men. It manifests the collective subconscious of generations of feminist resilience and sovereignty. Transcending the physical limitations of biological sex, geographical location, economical circumstances and cultural background, the members incarnate as avatars.
In this rare public surfacing, initiated by Katharina Haverich in collaboration with Yael Sherill and Lianne Mol, octopuses, frogs and other animated characters descend into the darkest corners of their subconscious, and bring their violent dreams onto the virtual stage. They are enlisting other dangerous women to share their own dreams, and join a decentralized chorus of radical voices.
These testimonies will be collected in the framework of a docu-visionary performance art project, and will erupt into a performative installation for real and virtual space.
