Cornelia Sollfrank has alerted us to the publication of the English version
of The Beautiful Warriors! and its presentation as part of tomorrow's
Techno-feminist festival at the Barbican.
Both look fantastic!
"We will present it on Saturday, 5th of October 2019 in London as part of
the New Suns Feminist Literary Festival at Barbican Centre.
The Beautiful Warriors. Technofeminist Practice in the 21st Century brings
together seven current technofeminist positions from art and activism. In
very different ways, they expand the theories and practices of 1990's
cyberfeminism and thus react to new forms of discrimination and
exploitation. Gender politics are negotiated with reference to technology,
and questions of technology are combined with questions of ecology and
economy. The different positions around this new techno-eco-feminism
understand their practice as an invitation to take up their social and
aesthetic interventions, to join in, to continue, and never give up.
With contributions by Christina Grammatikopoulou, Isabel de Sena, Femke
Snelting, Cornelia Sollfrank, Spideralex, Sophie Toupin, hvale vale, Yvonne
On the occasion of the publication of "Beautiful Warriors" in English
translation, edited by Cornelia Sollfrank, Mindy Seu, Judy Wajcman and
chair Marie Thompson explore contemporary theories and practices of
technofeminism. Incorporating ecological, decentralized, economic and
intersectional perspectives, they look at how today’s forms of
discrimination and exploitation are being responded to by feminist hackers,
techno-eco-feminists and others.
