Fragile Histories: Reconstruction of Lesbian Subject in Barbara Hammer’s Film

The case study of the film Nitrate kisses, the first part of the so called “History Trilogy” by the lesbian movie director Barbara Hammer, indicates how alternative histories could be conceptualized. The movie evokes questions such as how to reconstruct the fragmented lesbian history in a way that a continuum of the community through time can be established; who belongs, and who has been excluded from the history of lesbianism. On a second level, the movie opens the possibilities of an alternative historiography that deals not only with the processes of exclusion and a reconstruction of history into a narrative but seeks also the connections of belonging in the fragmented affective history of touch.
