The monographic publication Helke Sander: I like chaos, but I don’t know whether chaos likes me comprises texts from “Frauen und Film” (women and film), the first feminist German-language film magazine founded and edited by Helke Sander in 1974.

The texts selected for publication focus on central issues of feminist film work, economic and legal conditions and, above all, their structural conditions in social relations and the radical critique of them.

In the publication, the reprints of the texts from “Frauen und Film” are accompanied by a conversation between Helke Sander and the film scholar Elena Meilicke on the beginnings and the context of the journal’s development. In order to additionally illustrate the close connection between the practice of writing and the cinematic work, excerpts from a working version of the screenplay of Die allseitig reduzierte Persönlichkeit – Redupers are published for the first time.

The publication makes Sander’s texts, in both analogue and digital versions, accessible for the ongoing debate on production conditions and gender relations for subsequent generations of artists.

Scriptings’ reader format “Political Scenarios” is published in collaboration with Archive Books and the e-book publisher EECLECTIC. The aim is to publish carefully selected scripts and texts by artists that refer neither to academic nor to purely literary forms of writing, but embed “text” as an integral part of a contemporary political art practice.

Achim Lengerer (Hg.)
