Revolutionary Love


moment of a collective break

it is often not the big moments in masses or intellectual discussions that feel most transformative to me. When I think about moments that felt as if something could change, as if something might be different soon, I think of moments in between with loved ones.

sharing thoughts while cooking over the fire in the mountains
taking a break together to lay on the grass of a hill
while reading to each other before going to bed
sitting on the floor and sharing a maté or a cigarette after a protest
it’s in the breaks, the in-betweens, the afterwards
This mini-audiobook is a snippet of a moment of a collective break.

  1. Nuria Tinnermann is slowly finishing her Master in Social Anthropology at the University of Berne in Switzerland. Currently, a field recorder accompanies her to most places as she is exploring audio-visual research practices. When she's not at university, she is working in environmental education with children and teenagers, trying to unlearn with them traditional ways of talking about the more-than-human world and today's ecological crisis.
