Présentation par Loraine Furter – Université des Femmes janvier 2017 – avec Laurence Rassel

“Mesdames et Messoeurs,
Bienvenue sur le plus hybride des espaces de travail que cette planète ait jamais engendré! Le mot Hybride a deux significations: d’abord, la batardisation des genres, leur immixtion sexuelles, l’interpénétration de leurs essences, leur croisement génétique, leur métissage actif. Deuxièmement: être arrogant, outrancié, osé, impertinent, intrépide. En deux mots, soyez audacieuses dans le mélange des genres et des gens.”

Lynn Randolph, illustration pour la couverture du livre de Donna Haraway “Simians, Cyborgs and Women”, 1991.

“She recommended blasphemy, irony and humor as the means toward a comprehensive subversion of the cultural practices surrounding science, technology, and socialist-feminism as she dismantled and reassembled their codes. She offered pleasure, pleasure in becoming competent in the use of new techno-scientific tools and the opportunities they presented.”

“Cyberfeminism was about ideas, irony, appropriation and hands-on skilling-up in the data terrain. It combined a utopic vision of corrupting patriarchy with an unbounded enthusiasm for the new tools of technology. It embraced gender and identity politics, allowing fluid and non-gendered identities to flourish through the digital medium”
Julianne Pierce de VNS Matrix, Info Heavy Cyber Baby, 1998

“Not every artist’s generation is in the lucky position of witnessing the birth of a new technology that has the potential to revolutionize the world, its communications, economy, politics, and art.”
[…]
Early Cyberfeminist ambitions may appear outdated in a "post­Internet" context, but they are more relevant than ever; […] as a term and as a collectivity, Cyberfeminism can and must bring women together, to inspire and to grow creative and critical work.
