ARTH 4153/6153 Topics in Feminist Media Arts: Feminist Posthumanisms in the Visual Arts (FGSS/ VISST)


M. Fernandez

W 9:05 – 11:00 am - ONLINE

While some feminist works of art in new media address traditional feminist concerns such as the female body, identity, representation, feminist history, and consumerism, others directly engage with recent theoretical currents on the Anthropocene, posthumanism and new materialisms that view humans and non-humans as co-dependent. Non-humans include environmental factors, animals, plants, bacteria, and machines. This seminar will examine work by contemporary artists engaged with posthumanist perspectives in relation to a body of relevant theoretical texts and previous feminist media arts.
