We would like to invite you to participate in 
formulating the FO/GO Lab Selectionary. It is a 
dictinoray-like selection of phrases which we 
would like to (re-)formulate for a feminist 

Please chose one or more phrases and write 
(scientifically, essay-like, fictively, 
lyrically) something on the phrase. You are also 
allowed to add more phrases defined by you, if 
the mobility phrase of your choice is not yet 
included. Texts should be written in English or 
German. Please return your essays, texts, prose, 
lyrics till 01.September 2006 (20-300 words). The 
texts will be accompanied by the authors name 
(e.g.: Flower: a flower is a plant which blooms. 
Flowers come in different sizes, smells, colours 
and forms. [Lilly Rose (Vienna/A), 

The selectionary will be published as part of the 
Research Fellowship Project of FO/GO Lab at the 
Jan van Eyck Maastricht. Every participant will 
receive a copy.

FO/GO Lab is a Vienna-based group of feminist 
theorist: Angelika Bartl, Irene Lucas, Elisabeth 
Penker and Ruby Sircar.
