Girls Like Us #11
‘Girls like us’ is an independent magazine focused on an international community of female artists, writers and activists. Through portraits, experimental works of art and very personal interviews, the publication wants to document the social changes we are witnessing today aiming for a feminist post-gender future.
Every issue explores a different aspect of being a woman today, the N.11 focuses on economies. Inescapable, indescribable, uncontrollable and essential, economies are everywhere. Oppressive and enabling, lucrative and undervalued, there are economies that trade our emotional labour, desires, love, fertility, time, minds, queerness, politics and clicks. There are economies that we can control and that control us, and those that we can subvert to serve our collectives. A mark, a yen, a buck or a pound, in a conversation with a cat, an app-enabled journey through a rainy Shanghai night, in the margins between intimacy and power, in the kitchen, with your record collection, under the tip of the iceberg, at the foot of a tower she built, dancing at the lesbian bar.
