Fábula encinta (Expecting Fabula) explores the image of male pregnancy in literature and writers’ biographies. The work specifically revolves around the rethoric of authors that refer to their works as offspring and to their creative process as gestation.
In the video, a researcher articulates his discourse while discarding index cards that reveal the subjective aspects of his labor.
