Permeable Bodies

  1. Performing the Sublime Sea of Co-Mattering
  2. Online-Talk | With Mary Maggic
22 November 2023 (online only)

Biohacking methodologies produce an existential knowing in our bodies and environments, leading to collective strategies that may help us out of ecological ruins. The talk describes how biohacking, as a xeno-feminist practice of care, can inevitably lead to a form of world-making, where collectivities can emerge with a radical breakage from the past.

  2. Artist Talk with Lyndsey Walsh
25 June 2023

Self-Care is Lyndsey Walsh’s artistic attempt to reckon with ruptures in their identity caused by the rising use of genetic diagnostics in medicine. Using Lyndsey’s own body, Self-Care weaves a narrative about health, gender, and identity that seeks to resist the confines of the medical gaze. This talk will explore the larger body of research that has given way to Lyndsey’s artwork.
