Hi Spectralists,

If you are in the neighborhood!

Faces at Ars Electronica  -- 20 Years of Art, Gender, Technology

 #GetaHead #EatYourCake

As part of the events marking 20 years of Faces in 2017, we are
organizing several events at Ars Electronica this year - a panel
discussion & the Faces Generated Celebration! We have also reserved a
table to get together in the evening and share the videograms! We
might also hijack the Radio Fro studio for a longer discussion...
Stay tuned!

For now, check out some of the videograms - more are still coming in!

Saturday 9 September

OK im OÖ Kulturquartier -  OK Offenes Kulturhaus Oberösterreich
OK-Platz 1, Linz

13:00 - 15:00 #EatYourCake
Faces Generated Cupcakes will be served up with a bit of Sekt! The
poll entries generated a unique cupcake recipe base that Veronika
Krenn and Vesela Mihaylova have prepared.

15:00-16:00  #GetaHead
Feminist Climate Change: Beyond the Binary

Faces Celebration Dinner

Hauptplatz 4 (in the back)

We have reserved a table for 15 people! Please let us know if you'd
like to join (per email or in person!). It would be lovely to have
faces and friends join us. We are happy to host you, but unable to
invite you!



The Faces mailing list launched in 1997 as a pragmatic response to the
needs of a small but growing number of women in media - the question
"where are the women?" and the desire to find out what women do with
new media defined a gap in existing technological structures  and
developments. This exposes how gendered constructions come into play
as visions for the future are conceived and evolving non-human actors
are systematized. But to what end: how do techno-utopic dreams
translate into lived realities and for who?

The FACES community is administrated and maintained by Diana McCarty,
Kathy Rae Huffman, Us(c)hi Reiter and Valie Djordjevic. Since 2002,
the Faces mailing list and website have been hosted by servus.at, a
non commercial cultural backbone in Linz.
