Nisti Stêrk's affective spaces in For Sweden - With the Times (För Sverige i tiden!)

Abstract [en]

Christina Svens focuses on feminist performance affects designed to expose and displace everyday racism in contemporary Swedish society. Kurdish-Swedish performer Nisti Stêrk brings audience members on stage and places them in partially improvised comic scenarios involving her place as a foreign other in the midst of a prosperous and tolerant Western society that now intersects and contends with neoliberalism. Svens analyses the peculiar work of affect in Stêrk's performances, which address unarticulated feelings about racial and ethnic identity, as well as gender and class. Stêrk, Svens argues, fosters feelings of equality based not on sameness but on difference; her activism is located in an affective relationality in which otherness, instead of 'sticking' to Stêrk's body, becomes an object that all can remake.
