There is no tomorrow. There is no time. We have time. We wait in excitement with our racing flags, eating sunflower seeds, making the starting line dirty. That’s oriental(!). Why did I move here? Guess, it was the weather. Hot limbs in their GTA sway initiating the start, hot limbs splash foam on the metal surface. That’s the old system they’re living in. Mainstream. Doors open doors shut. New Cars Used Cars Car Dealers Prices & Reviews. Kraftstoffverbrauch kombiniert: 8,4-7,6 l/100 km; CO2-Emissionen kombiniert. The gaze indicates the excitement. Is this fast or furious? Did you know that the parking spots closer to the exit are for women? So that if they get attacked, they’ll be closer to an escape. Why do you like racing? Is it the speed or is it the pain? The pain of rootlessness. Is this all just a cliche?

GÖKSU KUNAK (b. 1985 in Ankara) is a writer, performer, and performance-maker based in Berlin. Kunak’s interest lies in queer methodologies and hybrid texts that deal with the performative lingo(s) of contemporary lifestyles. Kunak imagines new situations through real encounters that point out the problematics of hetero-patriarchal structures: orientalism, self-orientalization, and Eastern masculinities in relation to state governmentality. They have performed their productions among others at: Sophiensäle, Berlin (2021); The Blank Contemporary, Bergamo (2021); HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Berlin (2021); Next Waves Theater, Volksbühne, Berlin (2021); Live Works Prize Vol. 8, Centrale Fies, Dro, Italien (2020); Lab of Contested Space, Akademie der Künste, Berlin (2020); The Parliament of Bodies, Bergen Assembly (2019); Pogo Bar, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2019).
