Call for Participants for 3rd "<Interrupted = “Cyfem and Queer>” in Berlin Saturday, August 10, 2019 | aquarium & OHM | Berlin
News from Jul 15, 2019
Attention: artists, writers, activists, coders, scholars, analysts. Berlin’s Creamcake is looking for academic, professional and creative visionaries to join their 3rd "<Interrupted = “Cyfem and Queer>” symposium, taking place on August 10 at aquarium and OHM and exploring the contemporary reality of data, surveillance and automation. Applications are open to those looking at the body from the outside, considering not only its surrounding structures, limitations and systems of control but also the possibilities for optimization and emancipation through technology. Curated by Creamcake and Gala Rexer, this third and last episode aims to critically engage with and build upon the previous cyber- and technofeminist-focussed symposia, which discussed the status quo of past and present cyberfeminist thought, practices and politics before concentrating on the biotechnological and political management of bodies, sex and gender through a cyber/technofeminist lens.
