“Biocode: Performing Transgression After New Media” will explore possibilities of digital transgression across multiple fields of inquiry, including gender and sexuality studies, critical race studies, disability studies, and transnational and border studies.

Used by natural scientists to advocate a new taxonomic nomenclature for all living things, the term "biocode" also appears in contemporary biopolitical critique to describe a crucial unit of power in our age of techno-capitalism, one that is marked by the proliferation of technologies that manage and marginalize our biomatter in increasingly intrusive ways. Rather than seeking agency solely outside of these systems, a range of individuals and communities have actively worked within them, repurposing them to new political, affective, and aesthetic ends. Drawing inspiration from these practices of bio-coding and bio-hacking, the conference will bring a variety of artists, activists, and theorists together working on tactics of resistance, disturbance, and transgression through and in response to the digital turn.

Conference panels, projects, and performances will use digital media to examine how sites of vulnerability may equally become sites of transgression. It is precisely from within such spaces of vulnerability that the speakers for “Biocode” have developed a set of tactics and optics for experimenting with the interfacial potentials between digital manipulation, artistic performance, and political intervention.
