Short description: Lecture performance by Sarah Vanhee at WoWmen

Since many years I’ve been working on screaming. Screaming is an immediate, affective act, revealing both the strongest power and deepest vulnerability.

I found little or no existing work – academic, artistic or other- that would focus fully on screaming as a phenomenon. I thought it would be interesting to bring some screams together in an anthology, a collection of uttered and non-uttered screams, reflecting on how history, politics, identity and complex power dynamics influence our capacity to scream. In collected screams I share examples of screams and screamers in theory, science, literature, history, fine arts, philosophy, music, mythology, psycho-analysis, sports, film etc.
