[rohrpost] very cyberfeminist international

OLD BOYS NETWORK (OBN) proudly presents:

Hamburg/Germany - December 13th to 16th, 2001

>From december 13th to december 16th, 2001 the Old Boys Network (OBN)
invites cyberfeminists, fans, friends and fiends of cyberfeminism as
well as the interested public to join the Very Cyberfeminist
International in Hamburg/Germany - the 3rd international meeting of the
cyberfeminist alliance, following the First Cyberfeminist International
(Kassel/Germany, September 1997, in the context of Hybrid Workspace at
documenta X), and the Next Cyberfeminist International (Rotterdam and
Amsterdam/NL, March 1999, in the context of Next Five Minutes Festival)

Cyberfeminism is no game without borders, but a playing with borders
that takes them seriously, a work at the boundaries of that 'contested
zone' in which the so-called real and virtual diverge, and which mines
utopias of transgression, understanding them as a potential for
transformation. What role does the digital medium play in the current
restructuring of the world when old borders are shifted and new ones set
up? And what is the symbolic and concrete function of 'woman' in this

A complex field opens up at the interface between gender and technology
which results from the question of border and it's transgression. Mostly
symbolic transgressions will be analyzed which are experienced (and
sentenced) as aggression against an existing order. Artists,
politicians, theorists and activists from 11 different countries with
highly diverse and international radius of action have been invited.
