An asterisk at the end of nouns. An I at the end of LGBT. A third gender, no gender, man and woman at the same time, neither man nor woman.
Humans have always tried to give themselves explanations for the extraordinary appearance of hermaphrodites, in today's language intersex people. Explanations, which generated and generate different ways of dealing, which up to the
which are connected with disenfranchisement and violence until today. Defying any categorization, intersexual people were forced into invisibility for a long time. At the end of the nineties, intersexual persons spoke out publicly for the first time. The narration of their experiences thus began to influence the public and thus also changed the individual life realities of intersexual persons.
mixed_me approaches these narratives and tries to find space in them for a re exion that goes beyond the dichotomy man-woman. mixed_me is a manifesto of the ambiguity of human nature, demands the right to ambiguity and tells of the process of building an identity between the human urge for normality and the personal pride of being unique: a person in search of his position in the world, which repeatedly assigns him a role he cannot or does not want to occupy.
Multiple voices and power relations, facts and positions are reflected through the filter of a living body as in a labyrinth of distorted mirrors. We open a laboratory of facts and of possibilities, and in the process we keep coming up against the question: how many can one person be?
