People who have saved this event:


A screening of video art based on the practice of curator Kathy Rae Huffman–a pioneer of media art, cyberfeminism,, broadcast and television art–whose collection of rare books and catalogues is held at Res.


In contrast to the collectivity of mass media, Phobias and Fantasies focuses on technologies used in the privacy of one’s home. Household gadgets have been historically marketed for women, while the personal computer allow for opportunities to self-construct virtual, anonymous identities on the Internet. Molly Soda and Branda Miller use dating websites and webcams to represent female desires and behaviours in cyberspace, Cornelia Sollfrank speaks to an anonymous female hacker practicing Electronic Civil Disobedience and Anna Mikkola explores the automation of affective, domestic tasks constructed as unwaged women's work.

5:10pm: Molly Soda, "Come To My Window" (2016)
5:40pm: Branda Miller, "U & I’dOt cOm" (1999) 
6:10pm Anna Mikkola, "Morphopoietic" (2017)
6:40pm Cornelia Sollfrank, "have script, will destroy" (2000)


Phobias and Fantasies is the second of two screenings in the 'Electronic Civil Disobedience: Screenings of Video Art 1993∞2017' programme. The first screening 'TV or Not TV' is on 25th June.
