The phrase Some People do this for Fun I'm just a Cunt ... by an unknown tagger was measured, photographed and reproduced in its original size on a mirror using stencil technique and paint spray. The re-transfer to public space provokes a reflection on the terminology "cunt": people with vulvas, biological cunts, surgical cunts, metaphorical cunts. Transwomen with phalloplasty, transmen with vulvas, people with testo-clits or clit-dicks, transwomen who refer to their genitals as vulva or cunt, cis-women and those who grew up without words or history to their gender. The word "cunt" has a powerful origin and is related to the Indian goddess Kunti, to know / ken (to know something), queen (queen), king (king), kin (kin), country (country) and more.
