In den Installationen, Performances und Videoarbeiten beschäftigen sich die KünstlerInnen mit (postkolonialen) Körperpolitiken und post-pornographischen Strategien.
Sie fragen nach den Normierungen von Körper und Blick und suchen nach Gegenblicken und subversiven Aktionen.
Die Arbeiten kreisen um die gesellschaftlichen Verknüpfungen von Leben, Bildern und Ökonomien und versuchen dabei den gewohnten Blick spielerisch aus der Bahn zu werfen.
Die Ausstellung läuft über eine Woche und umfasst zwei Performance-Abende, sowie Langzeitperformances, Installationen und dokumentarische Videos von Performances.
Mit Arbeiten von:
Alina Helal und Jessyca Hauser, George Rusalin, Fanni Futterknecht, Daniela Grabosch, Anna Krambeck, Cellulite Rose, Matthias Derschmidt, Lena Schuster, Shabnam Chamani, Ahoo Maher, Anna Spanlang, Heidemarie Pyringer, Daliah Heeger, Julischka Stengele

Here's some info about my work in the show:
Embroidered Digital Commons: Meme
The Embroidered Digital Commons is a collectively stitched version of
the Raqs Media Collective’s text ‘A Concise lexicon of / for the
Digital Commons’ 2003, facilitated by Ele Carpenter. The term 'meme'
will be stitched as part of Furtherfield's exhibition 'Being Social'
opening in their new gallery in the middle of Finsbury Park, London.
The Saturday morning workshops are open to all and will be facilitated
by Emilie Giles and Ele Carpenter with special guests. See
http://www.eleweekend.blogspot.com for more details.
A cultural ‘meme’ is the way in which an idea spreads; so if you are a
crafter, computer programmer, artist, blogger, maker, or just
interested in cultural memes and social networks then you are invited
to come along and find out more about the project. The embroidery of
'meme' will include a series of grey on black embroideries in support
of the protest against the highly restrictive SOPA and PIPA
anti-piracy laws. So if you feel strongly about digital rights and
electronic freedoms black fabric and grey thread will be provided.
Further Info on the Embroidered Digital Commons:
The full lexicon of the digital commons is an A-Z of the
interrelationship between social, digital and material space. It
weaves together an evolving language of the commons that is both
poetic and informative. The terms of the lexicon are: Access,
Bandwidth, Code, Data, Ensemble, Fractal, Gift, Heterogeneous,
Iteration, Kernal, Liminal, Meme, Nodes, Orbit, Portability,
Quotidian, Rescension, Site, Tools, Ubiquity, Vector, Web, Xenophilly,
Yarn, and Zone.
The ‘Embroidered Digital Commons’ is an ambitious project to
hand-embroider the whole lexicon, term by term, through workshops and
events as a practical way of close-reading and discussing the text and
its current meaning. Each term is chosen in relation to the specific
context of its production through group workshops, conferences and
events. Each term is then stitched by 20-40 people and is used as the
basis for a short film depicting the sequence of embroideries.
The embroidery is a slow reproduction of ‘A Concise Lexicon of / for
the Digital Commons’ text, transmitting the meme of the lexicon to
hundreds of people stitching across the globe. In this way the work
is a cultural meme, transmitting ideas through thinking and making as
part of a distributed participatory project. The meme of the digital
commons travels fast through networks that investigate the language of
shared production and distribution, for example crafters and open
source programmers are committed embroiderers of the digital commons.
As a particularly virulent meme, the idea of the digital commons has
spread across all areas of cultural production including music, design

The website features videos, audio recordings and transcripts of the presentations, the majority of which took place at a December 2008 symposium entitled Art Institutions and the Feminist Dialectic.
“In recent years, artworks that arose from the activism and social consciousness of the late 1960s, and works that addressed anti-war, civil rights and feminism have been entering public collections,” says Carla Garnet, the curator who helped organize the presentations. “Consequently, a new discussion of how feminist work performs in the public space becomes timely.”

This event is included in The Fearless Frame, a major survey of the work of Barbara Hammer at Tate Modern, curated by Barbara Hammer and Stuart Comer.

Tate Modern – Starr Auditorium
This performative screening considers what a feminist moving image practice might mean to artists working today. Departing from a wide range of references and source material, the artists consider 'feminist' or 'women's' work within theatre, film and fashion. Layering archival material with live performance from audience members, the artists map out a new territory for women within the mainstream. This screening explores new forms of agency that the power relationships which govern both the work of women artists and also the creation of the images of women opens up. It introduces the figure of the young girl as subjected to dominant forces yet simultaneously empowered by this supposedly marginalised position.
This screening was commissioned and produced by Auto Italia South East and initially performed in December 2011 atBodies Assembling. Produced through a collaboration between Auto Italia and the women's film distributer Cinenova,Bodies Assembling saw a range of contemporary responses to feminist and women's film and video. The project brought together the practice and ideas which are represented in the films and videos distributed by Cinenova and the individuals and organisations presenting the screenings. Through taking Auto Italia as an active model in the dual creation of both new work and also the context in which that work is distributed, Bodies Assembling became a forum to consider contemporary forms of distribution and self-representation.

In the performance and installation ReBirth, the body is used, bruised, and scratched, yet it remains strong. The dialogue it establishes points out the historical use and traces of human bodies in the process and products of architectural construction.
