Sofia Bempeza is an artist, writer, performer and cultural symptom based in Zurich and Vienna. She teaches at the Zurich University of the Arts and pursues her PhD at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. In Sound Acts she presented "Typing in your Face" (together with Vasso Markou), a performative re-enactment of Carole Roussopoulos' / Delphine Seyrig's film "S.C.U.M. manifesto", an hommage to the flamboyantly misandrist manifest by Valerie Solanas. As Sofia states "working on, with, and against Valerie Solanas provokes pleasure, excess, and dissension. Valerie manipulates you, her words create an affront. The obsession becomes a shrink, her uneasiness spits on you."
