About this event

Get hands-on experience in making your very own eco-prints using easily available materials such as flowers and leaves. Participants will get the opportunity to print on SOYA C(O)U(L)TURE, a bio leather derived from the product of soy production. This is a BYOF workshop: Bring your own flowers!

SOYA C(O)U(L)TURE is a project that aims to combat water pollution and poverty in Indonesia by taking advantage of an innovative process, which takes the toxic residues and polluted water that are byproducts of Indonesia’s intensive soy production and utilises them as inputs for manufacturing edible cellulose as well as bio-fuel and biologically tanned leather.

IRENE AGRIVINA

Open systems advocate, technologist, artist and educator, Irene Agrivina is one of the founding members and current directors of HONF, the Yogyakarta-based arts, science and technology laboratory. Created in 1998, HONF aka the 'House of Natural Fiber' was born out of the social and political turmoil against the nepotism and corruption of the Suharto regime. In 2013, Agrivina co-founded XXLab, an all-female collective focusing on arts, science and free technology as a second generation of HONF’s spin-off communities. One of XXLab’s projects, SOYA C(O)U(L)TURE was awarded [the next idea] Art and Technology Grant voestalpine by Ars Electronica in 2015. In 2019, Agrivina was chosen by Asialink, Australia as one of six women pioneers from south-east Asia and Australia.

Feminist Hardware Festival

16th of May - 14th of June 2022

Queer, non-binary and female-identified media artists come together to rethink the notion of hardware from a feminist perspective. They extend the ethics of feminist hacking to ecological circuits. By using decentralized, fair-traded, modular, renewable, non-toxic materials they speculate upon future alternative technologies: they create hardware made from water, air, bubbles, waste, body-liquids, microbes, glass, soil or plants.

We proudly present a diverse selection of local and international artists who generate empathic, eco-sentient and anti-racist soft/hardware. They investigate the use of organic, biodegradable, microbial matter for creating ethical technology that helps to unpack the late capitalist industrial complexity of the high-tech.

Building their artistic circuits the artists are learning from biocultural, reciprocal restoration, feminist data science and environmental movements. By doing so, the artists prototype models of generative and subsistent commons with human and non-human agents.

Through workshops, talks, performances and exhibitions we will debate artistic, anti-colonial alternatives to sexist, toxic and extractivist commodity chains. This way we propose the term feminist hardware as a vehicle to diffract gender equality with sustainable and healing ecologies.

The 1st Feminist Hardware Festival is a synergetic extension of Feminist Hacking: Building Circuits as an Artistic Practice international 3-year art-based research project (PEEK AR580) conducted by Stefanie Wuschitz, Patrícia J. Reis and Taguhi Torosyan at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in collaboration with Mz* Baltazar’s Laboratory .
