Waxing immolation

Performance 2012


A self-immolation for the female gender’s full emancipation and for the final uprising of the women’s rights movement, by waxing out the taboo of bodily hair. A lecture on the Hammam as the ultimate emancipatory space for the Middle East women and a re-thinking of Donna Haraway’s Cyborgmanifesto for hairy women in the diaspora.



Concept and performance: Sara Gebran. Guesting Arena Baubo.

MDT Stockholm, September 2012.
