“Like Rosa Luxemburg before her, Majewska embraces failure as inherent to historical change and insists that despair is a luxury we cannot afford.” – Agata Lisiak
“This book [A Nazi Word…] is a small revolution that becomes a party that you won’t be leaving soon.” – Eileen Myles
With far-right ideologies on the rise, feminist writers Ewa Majewska and So Mayer investigate ways of resistance. By considering antifascist movements in Europe and analysing contemporary life and politics, they imagine a society built on trust, solidarity and community.
Ewa Majewska’s political study Feminist Antifascism imagines alternatives to our contemporary norms: how can the needs of a community be put ahead of the isolated individual? Where Majewska’s book looks to the future, Mayer’s A Nazi Word for a Nazi Thing explores the twentieth century, focusing on the Nazis’ Degenerate ‘Art’ exhibit in 1937. Getting wise to those exclusionary and dehumanising tactics, Mayer argues, might forewarn us if and when they make a return appearance.
Ewa Majewska is a feminist philosopher of culture and Affiliated Fellow at the Institute of Cultural Inquiry (ICI) in Berlin, Germany.
So Mayer is a writer, bookseller, organiser and film curator, currently based in London, UK. Their first collection of short stories Truth or Dare is out from Cipher Press in July 2023.
