At the beginning of the twentieth century, a young philosopher wrote his book Genderand Character. Shortly after its publication, in early October 1903, he rented an apartment in Vienna. The philosopher’s name is Otto Weininger, and he is twenty-three years old.He rented an apartment where Ludwig vanBeethoven died. Of course, this was no coin-cidence… In July 1968, a woman entered the studio of a famous artist and shot him dead.Her name was Valerie Solanas, and she turned herself in to a traffic policeman the same night.The man she had shot was Andy Warhol. Two people intransigent towards the world and their own lives.Two people who despised the other sex and made it blatantly clear through their state-ments. Misogyny (hatred of women) and mis-andry (hatred of men) at the key moments of the 20th century.

“A woman is either a mother or a whore; neither offers anything good, letalone intelligent. The worst man is still worthmore than the best woman…”,

“…man is just animperfect woman, walking abortion, aborted already at the genetic level. Being a man is be-ing an emotionally limited bastard; being a manis a physical defect, and men are emotional cripples.” How many people nod in acknowl-edged or covert agreement?”They create sharp, full of opinion, bold, provocative, visually striking, performative physical theater. And they master it brillliantly!”(Divadelní noviny)
