Machine Divas / Time Travelers

Vortrag|09. 04. 2011

opening hours: 17 Uhr

The term "machine divas" was coined by Virginia Eubanks in an interview on Survival Research Laboratories to designate the women who work in that group. The label "retro-utopism" is used by Inke Arns in her book "Objects in the mirror may be closer than they appear! – Die Avantgarde im Rückspiegel (The Avantgarde in the rear-view mirror) " to describe the fascination which artists in the 1990s had with the utopias and the technological innovations of the early 20th century. Kathy Rae Huffman, one of the most important feminist theorists and curators in the area of electronic art, from video and television to net art, a field she has worked in since the mid-1970s, will give a lecture on the topic "women - technology - art".
