          Auf Deutsch - in German

          If anything can save us in this fraught and dazzling future, it is the rage of women and girls, of queers and freaks and sinners.

          Laurie Penny

          Henrike Iglesias is on a mission: to embrace the evil inside oneself, give it a home and surround yourself with evil. Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere. But how to be bad? GRRRRRL examines the attributes referencing women and somewhere between Malleus Maleficarum and Britney Spears finds the productive power of destruction. GRRRRRL pays femmage to the nonconformist, the ugly, the loud – rendering femmage to the evil woman.
