Fog. You don’t see what is behind. Jessi

Fart of a small baby, releases easily without fear or discrimination. West

Oxygen. We all use oxygen, it does not discriminate who needs it. Gift

The silence after the storm, once you find yourself you are calm. Gerret

Belch. It’s a sign of satisfaction to any gender not because of rudeness, but it symbolizes alleviation. Toivo

Fart. All humans fart (strong or soft) regardless of gender. Helena

Air in the forest after rain, it smells fresh like you were washed afresh of your hidden self. Maxime

Helium gas, it’s colourless, odorless, tasteless and non – toxic. Gender is open, free and flexible. Pau

The air in a bubble, you can see the outside but not the inside. Just as you see a person and cannot identify their gender from appearance. Mari

If gender were a matter which one will it be and why? (Water/Gas/Liquid)

31. August 2019 von admin | Kommentare deaktiviert für If gender were a matter which one will it be and why? (Water/Gas/Liquid)

Liquid. It is free flowing and I believe gender is free flowing as well. Vanesa

It will be liquid like water in a permanent and semi permanent state; it can stand still and can move when it is allowed to and so is gender. Bret

Liquid, it doesn’t have a specific shape until it’s poured into a vessel or container. Chantell

Liquid like water. Whatever you chose to be, water is still the essence of everything. Gerret

Gas, as it is out there in the open, so is gender. We can humanly feel, but not see it as it is. Paula

Liquid is moveable and flexible, so gender can be flexible too. West

Gender is fluid (liquid) because we cannot contain it in our hands; it will slip through our fingers. Even if we contain them they will always stay fluid. Pau

Liquid, because our character / behavior keeps changing every time and is always flowing. Jessi

Liquid like water, even though you can see the liquid you can’t identify what kind it is, whether water or alcohol or else. Like you can’t see someone’s gender from the outside. Mari

If gender were a colour which colour will it be and why?

30. August 2019 von admin | Kommentare deaktiviert für If gender were a colour which colour will it be and why?

A rainbow, because it is diverse and also able to move smoothly into the other comfortably. Cecilijah

Colourless, colour implies specificity and for me gender has no specific thing. Gift

Red, because we all bleed red in the end despite our differences. Paula

Black, because you cannot see through it easily, the same way I see gender. Those around can see it but you are the only one who deeply knows. Gerret

Black. It is said when all colors are combined it creates black. We are all one at the end. Chantell

Gray. There are different shades of gray, just like there are different types of genders. Bret

Blue. It’s the most popular color for both men and women. Even though some men and women consider brown and orange unpopular respectively. Helena

Rainbow. Since nowadays there is no clear definition for gender or let’s say the border in-between. It is about individuality, that’s why I feel that the rainbow represents gender best. Tyshea

How does gender sound/move/act to you? Why?

27. August 2019 von admin | Kommentare deaktiviert für How does gender sound/move/act to you? Why?

Chantell: Like water transitioning into different forms in a series of moments. My personal experience with gender is that its fluid. It takes different forms within me at different times

Jessi: It moves like a robot – edgy – straight. Because gender is created by society, which gives us the „rules“ how to act or move.

Gift: It would be like mud or clay in the hands of a porter because it can be molded into whatever shape or form you like or what you think feels natural.

Toivo: It sounds like a baby crying. We all cried at birth regardless what gender you are.

Vivien: Gender sounds like ocean waves for me. I believe the ocean is one of the most breathtaking spots where one can calmly relax and express themselves.

Sendy: Gender does not have a specific way, form or behaviour but our society has a set of ideas and rules on how we expect women or men to behave and portray themselves. Just because our society is gender biased does not mean we should do the same.

Gerret: Movement, The flow of water because it represent all its three states and gender is almost the same.

Jesaya: Sound, It sounds neutral from the triangle instrument. It is distinct you dont really know where or how to place it.

Paula: It will be a cat walk movement because it is determined by every step and move with confidence and control.

What is gender to you and why?

26. August 2019 von admin | Kommentare deaktiviert für What is gender to you and why?

Jesaya: gender is the freedom to be yourself irregardless of social norms

Maxime: Not male or female but what you make of yourself/let yourself be

Pau: fluid – wide range of experiences, not only in the binary spectrum
an expression and social construct it changes through time and is complex
language gender is a lie binary spectrum is exclusive, there is more
complex and difficult to discuss about/ bring it to the table, discuss openly, deconstruct the structure

Paula: what we find comfortable within our inner-self before laying it out there because I am what I portray out there

Tyshea: a stereotypical construction given by society. It used to be a clear role allocation but now there are no more boundaries. For me there is fusion and a lot inbetween because each and every one is unique.

Mariana: an individual feeling combining a mixture of male and female energies. Some have more male or more female, some in between. Defining partly your behaviour and personality. Therefore we have multiple genders, however on paper we have three in Germany.

Gerret: an idea to identify difference among humans.

Day Four

If mumɔ were a color, which color will it be and why?

Blue. The colour of the sky, without clouds on a bright day. Selby

Blue. It reminds me of the strength of waves. Gerret

Turkys Blue. In the Asian color scale turkys blue is the color of happiness and opening up to people. To me it describes a large part of my identity. Naomi

White. It symbolizes transparency. It is very difficult to determine its motives, but within it has so many tings. Joseph

Green, it represents freshness, when a person is feeling hot, the wind makes the person feel refreshed. Doreen

Translucent white. Just like emotions, we need a 2nd and critical look through them to really see and understand what’s on the other end. Ato

Yellow. The colour of joy. Roanito

Green. It beautifies environment and gives some sort of inspiration. Again without plants and trees we wouldn’t breath. Edward

If mumɔ were a movement, sound or activity, which one will it be and why?

Rapping. You need to control your breath in and out in order to be clear and audible. Doreen

Spinning. It creates wind and wind let’s us recognize there is air. Gerret

Strong wind at a coast. Concentrating on my breath I start connecting with forgotten memories, so clear as if I were in that moment although I’m at the sea. Naomi

The sound of a pulse. The alternation of silence and a beat. Joseph

A volcanic eruption. It takes a while for me to show the power of my emotions. I let them rumble in the deep, then they swish as they move up rapidly until they finally explode. Ato

In reference to the state of matter, what is mumɔ and why? (solid/liquid/gas)

Gas. It fills a space and it changes atmospheres. Doreen

Liquid. It is nearly fluid that conforms to the shape of its container and remains a constant volume. Selby

Liquid. Life comes onto earth inside of water. (baby) Gerret

Gas. Mumɔ is a spirit that has no force or color. It is an energy that people give without knowing. Almost not existing. Naomi

Gas. It is everywhere at the same time, I can”t see it, but I can feel it. Its emotions are expressed by how strong it comes at you or how subtle it passes. Joseph

Gas. Mumɔ to me is a form of life. Life on this planet started in this same way. Faraz

Solid, liquid and Gas. Being solid is how I stay grounded. Being liquid allows me to flow and feel the spaces that allow me to flow. Being gas means I can achieve all the states as gentle as the breeze or buoyant as the wind. Ato

Solid. Mumɔ gives you strength, energy and it relaxes your mind, body and spirit. Roanito

Liquid. It easily adapts /adjusts to new environment, cause it doesn’t have a fixed shape. Angelica
