elPalomar | Put One’s Foot In It #05 ANARCHAGLAND – GYNEPUNK


Anarchagland (Anarcha, Lucy & Betsey) is a autonomous-research project about the history of gynecology, and an active and radical proposal to re-write it. Preparing a presentation of the text “My Pleasure is Spread and Daggers” by Chiara Schiavon, started researching about ejaculation glands , about who was Skene, the gynecologist whose name is used commonly to describe these glands. This led me to the beginnings of gynecology and meet Sims the guru o Skene, and the harrowing story of Anarcha, Lucy and Betsey and other women in this story, about Medical Apartheid, gynecologists and anatomists related it, about the tools and their history, the birth of urogynecology and its ramifications on the rhetoric of the prostate, female ejaculation, rhetoric of surgery for incontinence and vaginoplastic cosmetics, and current practices in Africa of welfare urogynecology.
Gynepunk’s objective is to make emerge DIY-DIT accessible diagnosis labs and technics in extreme experimentation, gynepunk is based in scientific methodology and discipline and in the knowledge that comes thought the experience of each body, ancestral bodywisdom, that’s why documentation, memory in any form is essential!
