München, Heidelberg, Berlin, 1999

In Tomboy, Thomas Meinecke and David Moufang pose the question of the cultural conditions for the construction of sexual identity, beyond all biologisms. The fragmentary texts used concern the scandalous social situation of women, strategies of feminine masculinity and of masculine femininity, and the political discourse on the discontent of the sexes (from Otto Weininger to Judith Butler). As a continuation of this 1998 studio production, which was committed to deconstructive feminism, Meinecke and Moufang wrote Freud’s Baby in 1999, a concert piece with words and music, which was performed live at intermedium 1 in Berlin and is concerned with the other identity-forging and damaging phallocentric projections of the sexual. Based less on male descriptions of women than Tomboy, but rather (again mainly in already established texts) on a demonstration of man's no less breathtaking constructions of femininity on his own body, Freud’s Baby contains irritating manifestations of so-called Great Men menstruating and even giving birth (when, for example, the Viennese doctor Sigmund Freud bears the baby of the Berlin doctor Wilhelm Fließ). A further (directly related) basic motif in the work emerges from the fatal parallel between anti-Semitism and antifeminism (and their reinterpretation with a positive spin in more recent Jewish studies). David Moufang alias Move D has run the techno label Source Records in Heidelberg since 1992. His album Kunststoff, released on this label, attracted world-wide attention in 1995. The vibraphonist Karl Berger, also born in Heidelberg and living in Woodstock and Frankfurt am Main, has been one of the most highly respected musicians on this instrument since he first played with Don Cherry and Steve Lacy in 1964. Together with David Moufang, he plays in the international formation Conjoint. Andrew Pekler came to Heidelberg from the USA and, under the name Sad Rockets, he brought out albums with electronic music on the Source and Morbid Records labels. He is a member of the electronic combo Bergheim 34 and the rock’n’roll band Mucus 2. Thomas Meinecke, who spent his childhood between Mannheim and Heidelberg and who today lives in Upper Bavaria, last brought out the album Tel Aviv with his band F.S.K. on the Sub-Up Records label and the novel Tomboy in Suhrkamp Verlag.
