What is love? Is love the meaning of life, a political alliance, an illusion or an end in itself? Or is it even impossible, because we are completely torn apart between fears for the future, excessive demands, and discriminatory structures?Şeyda Kurt takes apart our all-too-familiar norms of love in the force field of patriarchy, racism, and capitalism - and uses the example of her own biography to explore how traditional relationship models become unbalanced as soon as family ties that were thought to be secure break down and established truths come into doubt. Because love does not exist in a vacuum. It is a mirror of our society. And it is political.So how do we really want to love? Who and how many? What can it look like, a radical redesign of love? And how can people stand up together against the isms of our society - as partners, family and friends? Sharp-witted, witty, and with a keen sense for the many pitfalls and dimensions of love, Şeyda Kurt tells of her search for new narratives - and a language of tenderness that is our own, in which we can break with outmoded relationship models and dare to live together in a more just way.Şeyda Kurt is a freelance journalist, columnist, book author, curator, moderator and speaker. She writes and speaks about culture, politics and left feminism.
