Tabita Rezaire, Ultra Wet – Recapitulation (Filmstill), 2017, Courtesy of teh Artist & Goodman Gallery
In any society, one fundamental field in which gender is expressed is technology. Technical skills and domains of expertise appear to be divided between the sexes, shaping masculinities and femininities.
The exhibition analyzes the material worlds we are creating through technology and technology’s role in shaping local and global configurations of power, forms of identity, and ways of living. It draws on radical feminist and ecofeminist theories from the 1970s until now that criticized and revised the nexus tying new technologies and techno-science to patriarchal ideas. Its agenda is both intellectual and political. The works of the artists included in the show go beyond critique to think and enact other kinds of knowledge, skills, and bodily practices regarding the use as well as production of (new) technologies.
