Flowing, seeping, leaking, cascading, shaping. Electric Brine is a selection of poetry and critical essays written by women from diverse fields such as literature, geography, media studies, history of life sciences, sociology, and poetics of science and fiction. The literary and scientific fabulations these women create speak of embodiment, language, and the ability to trigger political imagination through reading, writing and witnessing.

Electric Brine was co-edited by Elise Hunchuck and Margarida Mendes. All visuals have been designed by Sophie Keij, Atelier Brenda.

The book features contributions by Dionne Brand, Barbara Orland, Sophie Lewis, Esther Leslie, Hannah Landecker and Lisa Robertson. Published by Archive Books, Berlin.
