Feminist Hack Meetings #3
At Varia + online
#Spideralex will introduce us to Feminist #Futurotopixs. This workshop will enable participants to dream, invent and desire together feminist #technologies. They will invent narratives, speculative fiction and radical imaginaries that work as alternatives to existing oppressive or dystopian models. The workshop is oriented at co-designing stories and creating new worlds as processes to imagine and #dream together about feminist desired futures.

F(eminist)H(ack)M(eetings), organised by Artemis, Angeliki and Julia, are a series of research meetings and workshops that explore the potentialities and imaginaries of feminist technological collectives. These gatherings aim to challenge who counts as a hacker, and what counts as hacking. More: fhm.varia.zone

I spoke to artist Joana Moll about her new piece for the Media Wall at The Photographers' Gallery last week.
We discussed microprocessors, their impact on the environment and the role of artists and the art world in the transition to a less polluting society.
You can read our conversation at Unthinking photography:
CORRECT time: 17:00 CET
Today at 15:30 CET I will participate in a conversation together with Caroline Sinders around societal issues and bias in technology referring to feminist artistic strategies critically addressing them, as well as the proposals that our work from different angles offer as an alternative.
Maybe some of you are interested to tune in. 👾

Zineing with (F)eminist (H)ack (M)eetings @SPREAD Zinefest (at Sign Gallery at Groningen), with lots of scanning, printing, binding, patching, folding, annotating, re-reading, messing.
It was amazing to see such a rich zine collection made by the hosts of SPREAD from feminist, artist zine makers from far away.
Thanks all the zine contributors who send their feminist zines and participants of the workshop.
Check out the FemLib with links from the publications of the contributors in the wiki fhm.varia.zone :)

Another little generator project. This is a tool made for the art event Lesbiennale (https://lesbiennale.art), aimed at the organisation team so that they can create pictures for their social network accounts by playing with the automated layout of the tool. Then PNG files are generated and can be downloaded.

and so turn into a "sissy"...
They have their ways ...
Keen psychiatrists and lousy policemen
are waiting for us in the corner."
