Abstract

The article examines constructions of the sexual in some writings by Gabriele Stötzer-Kachold, specifically through an analysis of the author's attempt to reclaim the derogatory term Votze. This aspect of Stötzer-Kachold's art is contextualized with reference to the general reception of her work as authentic autobiography, the notion of the sexual as taboo in GDR literature, and more general issues of feminism and feminist theories. Such a contextualization recognizes the importance of this author's feminist writing, while also evidencing the difficulties involved in such a project of revision and redefinition. (BL)
