Beyond Equality
#2 On Abolishing the Family – and Finding Alternatives

  • Dialogue

With “Full Surrogacy Now” and “Abolish the Family”, author Sophie Lewis has recapitulated the history of feminist criticism of the nuclear family. Her vision for the feminist organisation of everyday life is currently being widely discussed: she criticises the idealised concept of the family and advocates collective care work instead. Her lecture at HAU is followed by a discussion with political scientist Eleonora Roldán Mendivil and philosopher Eva von Redecker – a prelude to a festival on the subject of love, which will take place at HAU in April.
