Living in between languages.
(e)stranger is invisible, exotic, unidentifiable, rude, hybrid, blurry, deformed, subversive, incomprehensible, complex, pliable, lonely, abject, harder and more fragile at the same time … they are more resilient, more inventive, know how to protect themselves, are good observers, look around a lot, see and ask questions about things that seem to be selfevident …
Since April 2014 Annie Abrahams posted 77 times on her (e)stranger website. Some of these posts are personal, others go back to literature, art works or are more theoretical. The research was started during a residency in Ljubljana for which CONA Instistute for Contemporary Arts Processing, invited her. She won’t stop after the publication of this book, so please, don’t hesitate to point her to other sources that might help to further her quest.
The book, 98 pages, is available in print on demand (soft cover) for 18 euros (+ postage and tax) Lulu.com
