International Conference THE GIRL ON ‚SUBJECT’=???

Photo: Karin Ferrari, sculpture: Elisabeth von Samsonow

As one of the capitals of hysteria, Vienna seems to be particularly suited for a review of the girl theme under new auspices. The
hypothesis of the conference is that the symbolic girl opens the ontological frame within which the ideologemes of trans and
queer movements and those of object-oriented ontology and speculative realism are currently moving.
