I was invited by Daphne Dragona to speak at the closing event of the transmediale festival in the panel “Technology Languages of the Past, Present, and Future” and presented my readings on Lynn Hershman’s work “Agent Ruby” and her film “Technolust” with the wonderful Tilda Swinton.

I am working on writing down my talk – so check this space.

Berlin’s media arts community – a female perspective @ supermarkt Berlin

I am talking on April 9 at Supermarkt Berlin with lots of other Berlin media art women about my work in the 15 years I’ve been active. There will be lots of other lovely women presenting so it definitely will be interesting.

From the organizer’s call:

Featuring presentations from Tatiana Bazzichelli, Valie Djordjevic, Andrea Goetzke, Kathy Rae Huffman, Claudia Kefer, Julia Kloiber, Lisa Lang, Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen, Diana McCarty & Michelle Thorne. Moderated by Ela Kagel & Michelle O’Brien.[…]

Despite this large female contingent, and in a city where the workforce is generally evenly distributed, it is at odds that the theoretical discourse on media art and net activism, executive roles and directorships, as well panelists and participants at events and festivals, are still male-dominated. In a forward-thinking city like Berlin, this ongoing gap should be addressed so that the wider fields of media arts and activism are fully inclusive of the multitude of female skills and viewpoints on offer.[…]

This evening will provide an opportunity to get to know this community, share inspirations, identify trending themes in the field, and gauge both common resources and grounds for future collaborations – all in an informal, conversational setting. Whilst the focus of this event will be on the diversity of Berlin’s female media art community, anyone is invited to attend.

Cyberfem – Generations

re:publica 11
Am Freitag, den 15.4.2011, unterhalten sich Anne Roth, Diana McCarty, Katrin Rönicke, Teresa Bücker und ich über neuen und alten Cyberfeminismus auf der re:publica XI: Cyberfeministinnen und Girls on Web – ein Generationengespräch um 15 h in der Kalkscheune. Ich komme mir zwar noch nicht so alt vor wie es der Begriff „Generationengespräch“ impliziert, aber wenigstens ist die Startrek-Referenz lustig. Schaun mer mal, ob wir alten Schachteln den jungen Hüpfern was erzählen können.

Hack.fem.east in Kunstamt Bethanien


Diana McCarty and I are going to hang out at Kunstamt Bethanien this weekend. Tatiana Bazzichelli and Gaia Novati invited artists, hackers and activists to discuss the terms of hacking and making art in Eastern Europe. We are going to make net radio and interview everybody who crosses our way – so beware! It’s not yet clear how and when and where (well, it kind of is but we are still setting up and figuring things out) but watch the Hack.fem.east website for more info and our contributions.

The Language of Resistance is an attempt to confront the dissonance within European Feminist discourses and establish a forward thinking agenda that takes into account the multiple discourses and histories of the past. As part of a series of events that have taken place in Graz, Austria, and Manchester, United Kingdom, the infinite Prologue continues. Rethinking how we view what has already come to pass and how we imagine the future – most importantly, analyzing the conditions for living and working in Europe today from a feminist perspective.
