Stéphanie Dadour on Le génie Lesbien
25 March, 2021
A controversial book that should have an equivalent in architecture. Alice Coffin writes that she no longer wants to read male authors, in order to feed her imagination with other stories. ‘Men’s productions are the extension of a system of domination’, she explains. ‘They are the system. Art is an extension of the male imagination. They’ve already infested my mind. I protect myself by avoiding them. Let’s start this way. Later they can come back’.
By reading this book, one question remains: how would the world be, or look like, if patriarchy didn’t exist? How can I imagine anything without and outside the canon?
