Cyberfeminism Index (Book Launch / 8 Feb)
Join us on February 8 (16:00-18:30) at Perdu, Amsterdam, for the launch of Cyberfeminism Index, a publication by Professor (Rutgers and Yale), designer, and researcher Mindy Seu. The book includes more than 700 short entries of radical techno-critical activism in a variety of media, including excerpts from academic articles and scholarly texts; descriptions of hackerspaces, digital rights activist groups, and bio-hacktivism; and depictions of feminist net art and new media art.
The evening will feature a performative reading by Seu. Afterward, Inte Gloerich, technology researcher interested in critical and feminist approaches to technology, will talk about how fin-tech and care may come together and the experimental publishing of the Feminist Finance Syllabus. Ruben Pater, teaches graphic design and is author of CAPS LOCK. He will talk about how graphic design and capitalism have come to be inextricably linked. We conclude with a conversation between the speakers and drinks at the venue.
