Feminist Hardware Festival

Montag, 16. Mai 2022 - 18:00 Uhr

Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien

16TH OF MAY – 14TH OF JUNE 2022
Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, Mz* Baltazar’s Laboratory, AIL - Angewandte Innovation Lab

Queer, non-binary and female-identified media artists come together to rethink the notion of hardware from a feminist perspective.

They extend the ethics of feminist hacking to ecological circuits. By using decentralized, fair-traded, modular, renewable, non-toxic materials they speculate upon future alternative technologies: they create hardware made from water, air, bubbles, waste, body liquids, microbes, glass, soil or plants.

We proudly present a diverse selection of local and international artists who generate empathic, eco-sentient and anti-racist soft/hardware. They investigate the use of organic, biodegradable, microbial matter for creating ethical technology that helps to unpack the late capitalist industrial complexity of the high-tech.

Building their artistic circuits the artists are learning from biocultural, reciprocal restoration, feminist data science and environmental movements. By doing so, they prototype models of generative and subsistent commons with human and non-humans agents.

Through workshops, talks, performances and exhibitions we will debate artistic, anti-colonial alternatives to sexist, toxic and extractivist commodity chains. This way we propose the term feminist hardware as a vehicle to diffract gender equality with sustainable and healing ecologies.
