A secret can be a private space for self-creation – or a shared site of pleasure.
We explore secrets in a plethora of forms and contexts. From layered accounts of mediaeval ecstasy to the unexplored sensory experience of smell. From camouflaged play to queer readings of astrological charts and the hidden history of house music. From a very analog point of view to the outskirts of the internet.
Interviews with art critic Linda Yablonsky, scent researcher Sissel Tolaas and artist Juliana Huxtable. Artwork by Melissa Gordon, Lotte Reimann and Sara Van der Heide. Other people featured are a.o. filmmaker Chloé Robichaud, astrologist Rhea Wolf and singer Zhala Rifat, next to a hidden correspondence between writers Carson McCullers and Annemarie Schwarzenbach, a registry of pseudonyms by Riet Wijnen and much more.
