Die Heiliginnen

Reading by Lea Draeger

In the tradition of the artist book, Lea Draeger creates a 36-page work: over several generations she tells her family history and describes its Catholic patriarchal structures between witch-hunts, papal worship and male domestic violence. The complex and painful histories of the protagonists are aesthetically linked with the iconography of representations of saints. At the same time, Draeger’s icons are also iconoclastic disruptions of the connection of violence between religion, patriarchy and the bourgeois ideal of family.
