Aan hartstocht geen gebek” (“Passionate imperfections”)
text by Karin Spanik.
Karin Spanik: “My subjects are varied, but I do tend to write about matters of technology, health and bodies. For one of my books, Aan hartstocht geen gebrek (“Passionate imperfections”), that was made together with photographer Gon Buurman and that deals with disabilities and sexuality, I was awarded the Mary Zeldenrust-Noordanus prize in 1993 for the gentle way in which we broached a higly taboo subject.”

NB! The fact that an artist is mentioned in Feminine Moments’ bibliography it is of course no guaranty that she will be lesbian, bisexual or queer tomorrow, nor that the authors of the above books are “out and proud” in their writings…
