A fiery feminist manifesto from the Chilean performance collective who led the rallying cry for today's mass feminist movement across South America.

After the feminist art collective LASTESIS created their performance "A Rapist in Your Path" in their native Chile, it went viral across the globe, becoming the anthem of the grassroots feminist movements in South America and around the world. This is their manifesto, an angry, unrepentant tour-de-force that moves through rage, femicide, abortion, homophobia, feminist art, and the oppression of the state to argue for a feminist world based on collective struggle and a visionary political art. Translated by Camila Valle.

Reviews

  • LASTESIS, the Chilean feminist performance collective, shows today how popular art can be about changing the world, not entertaining.

    Nadya TolokonnikovaTime Magazine
  • This book is poetry, manifesto, collective knowledge, rage, and action. LASTESIS demonstrates that the feminist movement is not anti-intellectual, but rather redefines concepts and political theses: theory is a chant, a performance, a language embedded in bodies, and a way of collective existence.

    Verónica Gago, author of Feminist International
  • Introduces LASTESIS'S angry, galvanising and feminist vision to the Global North...Set Fear on Fire transforms the readers' own patriarchal terror into feminist rage.
