Raise awareness while playing a game
Finding pairs of matching vulvas while losing feelings of shame, prejudice and fear of contact: PUSSY PAIRS aka MUMURY. This game not only requires memory skills, but also some general brain work: The erasing and condemnation of female* genitalia is deeply ingrained in the human mind and an expression of the structural disadvantages of women and gender non-conforming persons in a patriarchal society.
ACHSE Verlag, creating and publishing unconventional hybrid projects in the context of social culture in Vienna: art, design and cookbooks, fiction, experimental book forms, annual artists’ series, calendars, online formats and everything odd, aesthetic or unimaginable. AV promotes the development and expansion of a European network that questions current structures and shapes the future book market.
Gloria Dimmel has been manufacturing vulva replicas within weekly sessions in Vienna, Austria, since 2017 where participants share their experiences and thoughts on social norms, sexuality, body image, gender roles, feminism and politics in a safe space. 18 vulva models were chosen for this memory game. By now more than 160 womxn participated in the overall project.
Parts of the profits of PUSSY PAIRS aka MUMURY will be donated to the organisation Safe Hands for Girls, which was founded in 2013 by Jaha Dukureh, a young Gambian woman. The organisation works in The Gambia, Sierra Leone and Atlanta USA, fighting FGM and child marriage. Their work combines grassroots activities with high-level advocacy.
