The exhibition is dedicated to Nathalie Magnan (1956-2016).
The exhibition Computer Grrrls brings together more than 20 international artistic positions that negotiate the relationship between gender and technology in past and present. Computer Grlz deals with the complex link between women and technology – from the first human computers to the current revival of cyber-feminist movements. A comprehensive timeline covers these developments from the 18th century to the present. Invited are artists, hackers, makers and researchers who are working on how to think differently about technology: by questioning the gender bias in big data and Artificial Intelligence, promoting an open and diversified Internet, and designing utopian technologies.
