Pretty much every single sister, daughter, mother, grandma and friend tweets or facebooks it. #metoo speaks of one thing in particular: toxic masculinity. What that means is that men are cultured into and taught how to be men in a way that is devastating to socities all around the world. When … Continue reading The problem with Men

The problem with Women

The problem with women are the same as the problem with men. We tend to see these as helpful categories. And perhaps sometimes they are? What we typically do when we speak about women or men is a short-cut that embodies a lot of different things. The problem is that in meeting other people the projection of what a ‘woman really is’ (or what a ‘man really is’) often overcodes and … Continue reading The problem with Women

The Forest Interface: What happened in the forest

This last weekend, 35 burners decended upon Stora Kinäs Gård, smack in the middle of the deep forests of Östergötland. For 48 hours, there was a lot of different things going on; cuddles, genuine conversations, a jam stage, electronica yoga, bathing in the lake, a lot of brilliant dj:s and live acts – among them the premieer of Saagan’s (aka Andreas Saag) live set that has … Continue reading The Forest Interface: What happened in the forest

The Sickness

We live in a world where we are told by forces (I know, it sounds ominous but bear with me) tell us that the individual should be self-sufficient. In their seminal works on Capitalism and Schizophrenia, Deleuze and Guattari talks about how psychoanalysis ‘works’, but is no neutral practice. I would argue that the same holds true for not only psychoanalysis but principally every strand of psychology … Continue reading The Sickness
