In »Lesbian Peoples: Material for a Dictionary«, authors Monique Wittig and Sande Zeig created a metafiction in the 1970s that claims to be a dictionary for an alternative lesbian reality. In this metafiction, lesbian peoples have founded their own civilisation that spans obscure continents and five ages. With their contemporary dictionary »She's a Touchdown to the Heart: A Dyke-Dog Encyclopaedia«, the collective DYKE DOGS takes Wittig and Zeig's work as a conceptual starting point for their own utopian reference work.
Lynn Takeo Musiol and Eva Tepest follow up thematically with the workshop WHO LET THE DYKE OUT? on Saturday at the Jaki Klub and explore with you the interlocking of experience and theory of lesbian-feminist writing and storytelling.
