Les Éditions du remue-ménage presents a selection of some fifteen titles, including a few recent releases as well as albums and books from the collection on women's artistic practices. This exhibition also puts forward the new collection Les Martiales, inaugurated by Chroniques frigides de modèle vivant, by Pascale Bernardin. "The laboratory, the experience of Martiales sets up spaces that make possible the freedom, sovereignty and valour of certain female subjects who are still too little hoped for as authors." Stephane Martelly, collection director.
REMUE-MÉNAGE is a beacon of feminist publishing, a reference for anyone interested in women's history, speech, creation and experience. In 1975, a group of women eager for feminist readings that were still not accessible enough decided to go in search of texts and women writers. They rolled up their sleeves and a few months later founded Éditions du remue-ménage. Remue-ménage took shape in the great activist ferment of the 1970s, which gave rise to several important feminist groups and movements. For 45 years, Remue-ménage has been disseminating and supporting feminist creation, nourishing reflection on the situation of women and on gender issues, exploring innovative themes and approaches, introducing new authors and supporting the work of accomplished women authors. Its catalog, now numbering over 300 titles, reflects several waves of the feminist movement, a variety of literary forms and fields of interest: artists, writers, philosophers, historians, political women, activists and workers from diverse backgrounds. Tenacious and creative, the editors of Remue-ménage publish daring books, a gamble that is often risky, but always necessary.
