What happens to that which sits on the tip of my tongue,
that which I cannot speak, for psychological, linguistic or semiotic reasons,
when we exchange kisses?

The publication French Kisses: On Tips on Tongues, and Feeling as Taste emerged out of a project of the same title, which the Side Room (Amal Alhaag, Maria Guggenbichler) hosted in September 2015 at District and other places and homes across Berlin.

French Kisses was a four day gathering of a group of international cultural practitioners, friends, guests, audiences and organizers.
During the four days, we thought about forms of taste which do not stem from separateness, social distance or distinction, but are based on tasting as touching, being in touch, being touched and affected.

French Kisses: On Tips on Tongues, and Feeling as Taste
is edited and remixed by Amal Alhaag and Maria Guggenbichler.
