Listening Session #3: Viktorija Rybakova

Please join us on Sunday the 20th of October for our 3rth lisening session with Viktorija Rybakova.

Introduction
I would like to invite to talk about birthing ritual and to listen to the sound piece that I made a few years ago on first erotic sensations we develop and memorise while being inside of the mother’s belly. Birth and Death is something that unites us, says one of the many birth assistants. Perhaps we can assist each other through a deeper understanding on what it is to be alive among other living, breathing and contemplating beings? As Sylvia Frederici states—The construction of the alternative society must begin with the profound transformation of the activities by which we reproduce our lives and the relations that sustain them.
