I think about you a lot.Yes.A lot?I’m not catching up with all these things.It was a gradual process of being ok with each other.Sometimes that’s all you need.Sometimes that’s exactly the problem. Sometimes it’s about a little discipline. I mean not everyone is always happy in their relationships. Exactly. Can I ask you a philosophical question? Of course. How do you feel? Quite nervous. Is this your first time? Being nervous? Yes. I mean no. Do you consider yourself boring?Yes, very.You mean particularly or generically?I mean there is nothing particular about me.We’ve been here a while.We are in this together, no?We’d like to believe so, but it’s sometimes really hard to know.I think sometimes we have to trust that it is.I think we can rely on the work that goes on here, like everyday, in holding the space.We’ve made a conceptual decision to stay.But we don’t think conceptually, remember?[drinking pause]I don’t get that.It’s ok.And quite frankly I’m pretty tired.Then maybe it’s time for us to go.That’s exactly what we don’t want to do.Sometimes that’s exactly what you need to do.Sometimes its important to go.Go where?How about over there? Sexting, Season 2 Every letter was a love letter. Let’s say all texting is sexting. Sexting makes obvious the entanglement of bodies, media, and discourses that any contemporary writing — however sexually explicit — is always embedded in. As our heads, hands, phones plus language barriers are non-stop bumping into each other, let’s then say something is changing and we sense this. But what is it? This is what we’re here for. Only as you well know, this, what is happening now is not sexting, season 1 anymore – there is already so much going on, and sometimes even beyond the heteronormative couple-form, beyond belonging itself. Wow! This is a series of text-based works exploring new as well as tracing forgotten constellations of bodies, the internet and the intimacy in-between. It is curated by Max Wallenhorst for CHANGE. And, like in a series, there’s always something else happening, side plots that might turn out to be so important.
