Conference 'Screen Strike' about #gender, #media, new #technologies at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (10 - 12 May 2012)
From 10 to 12 May 2012 at the conference 'Screen Strike - Gender-Medien-Kritik' at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (Atelierhaus - Semperdepot), scientists will lecture about the definition of sexes, races through the means of media such as photos or blogs. It is announced that even the architecture of technologies behind and the power structures of today's media will be investigated.
Central questions of the conference 'Screen Strike' are: Have media/gender sciences researched enough in technology? How appear media under the aspects human and the new 'non-human' factor? How could media-interventions look like?
Susanne Holschbach (researches on photography, media, one of her latest articles is about fashion) for example will talk about visual strategies of feminist blogs and channels under the title 'This is what a feminist looks like' on 10 May 2012. On the same day, Julia Roth speaks about politics of gender and race in cyberspace - 'New Media, Persistent Inequalities?'; and one day later on 11 May, Marina Gržinić's theme is 'Europe: Gender, Class, Race, Media. Entanglement'. The conference closes with Jennifer Eickelmann's lecture 'Performativität 2.0' about possible online-intenventions.
