For this issue of Kohl, we are looking for papers that understand queer theory as part of our histories, collective memory, and feminist futures. We are interested in challenging the boundaries of where theory originates from, and disrupting the notion that our queer knowledges are consumable rather than creative and productive.

Kohl is looking for pieces that archive the ongoing revolts from a queer, feminist, and intersectional perspective. We would like to reflect, collectively and across borders, on what constitutes a revolution, and account for the invisible labor and histories that go into a revolution in the making. 


We stand in stark opposition to this capitalist system, its view of material reality, its analysis, and its solutions to obstacles. We also disagree on tools and the methods it uses for drawing conclusions, simply because we are aware of the power dynamics dictated by the system, with which we have to deal through those policies and their experts.

Feminist revolution is as much of the kitchen’s as it is of the factory’s and everything in-between. In fact, in feminist revolution the hierarchy between kitchen and factory dissolves and starts with revolutionising our everyday.

A corrupt government disciplines its “subjects” for going outside the narrow confines of how and where and why they can protest. Their fingers, shaking at protestors in patriarchy that wants itself benevolent, in phallic warnings and threats and “look what you made me dos,” are met with raised fists, a feminist symbol of liberation.
