Place and route


Join Johanna Hedva for a presentation and discussion on the new book, "Minerva: The Miscarriage of the Brain".

The event is organised as part of the Konstfack course Bodies of Care, and the exhibition A Careful Strike. (Due to the current pandemic the exhibition has been postponed until fall 2021).

Minerva the Miscarriage of the Brain collects a decade of work from artist, musician, and author of On Hell, Johanna Hedva. In plays, performances, an encyclopaedia, essays, autohagiography, hypnagogic, and hypnopompic poems – in texts whose bodies drift and delight in form – Minerva tunnels into mysticism, madness, motherhood, and magic. Minerva gets dirty with the mess of gender and genius. She does the labour of sleep and dreams. She odysseys through Los Angeles, shapeshifting in stygian night and waking up to wail in the light.

The event will take place in English with BSL interpretation and live captions. For further access information please email and we can send you all necessary links in advance of the event. Questions can be asked by the audience via the Facebook chat, by emailing or by texting 0046735139340.
