A poetic manifesto, referring to other lesbian and queer declarations – the group Radicallesbians (The Woman Identified Woman, 1970), The Lesbian Avengers (Dyke Manifesto, 1992), Queer Nation (The Queer Nation Manifesto, 1990). Translated and modified by the artist, they form a collage that immerses their articulated experiences in contemporary Polish reality. By showing how heterosexual privilege works, the artist encourages us to rethink our own positioning in a world dominated by patriarchal and heterosexual norms. The work she has created is also a call for empathy, solidarity and attentiveness to others.
