Seduction of a Cyborg


13.08.2016 Seduction of a Cyborg constructs an ecosystem inhabited by hybrid figures that, like parasites, feed off of one another. The works scattered throughout the gallery are bound together by the notion of SF, a term philosopher and biologist Donna Haraway coined to refer to a feminist subgenre of science fiction. “Cyborg monsters in feminist science fiction define quite different political possibilities and limits from those proposed by the mundane fiction of Man and Woman.” Throughout the exhibition, there are references to the figure of the cyborg as conceptualized by Haraway in the eighties, that is, as “a creature in a post-gender world,” a formulation that has since become an icon of feminist emancipation.
Artists: Kiki Kogelnik (Austria, 1935–1997); Lynn Hershman Leeson (USA, 1941); Fernanda Laguna (Argentina, 1972); Elena Dahn (Argentina, 1980); Nicanor Aráoz (Argentina, 1981); David Douard (Francia, 1983); Rochelle Goldberg (Canada, 1984). Guest Curator: Florencia Cherñajovsky. Close: October 1st.
