Over de Writers Unlimited Podcast
Asterik conversations expand and overlap, trusting that different themes and threads interweave and cross, influencing each other. The asterisk resists the idea of core business, of a single issue struggle (Audre Lorde) or truth with a capital T. As Jack Halberstam writes in Trans*: the asterisk refuses to "situate transition in relation to destination, a final form, a specific shape, or an established configuration of desire and identity".
The Asterisk Conversations* "een sterretjesgesprek" features each episode a writer overseas and invites a maker based in The Netherlands to create a new work in response. This way, each podcast ends with the beginning of a new conversation.
