Wed 18 Mar 2015, 7-9pm
Artist and researcher Annie Goh presents her past and current work, introducing her project Banality of Affect and work-in-progress GendyTrouble:Radical Cyberfeminist Computer Music. Joining her will be writers and researchers Marie Thompson and Holly Ingleton who will be introducing their work on sound and gender.
Together, the discussion will take the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of Donna Haraway’s Cyborg Manifesto as an impetus to probe cyberfeminism’s auditive dimension and ask – what is sonic cyberfeminism and what does it sound like?
