From Editor Katy Deepwell’s post on the FACES List Serv:
The focus will be on feminist art criticism/women artists but there are
breakout sessions on performance, film and video and sound art.
n.paradoxa published a very early volume in 1998 on ‘Women and New Media’ in
the midst of discussions of cyberfeminism – which included Faith Wilding’s
essay ‘Where is the feminism in cyberfeminism?’, Marina Grzinic’s essay on
her films with Aina Smid; writing by Alla Mitrofanova, Olesya Turkina and
Irina Aktuganova (from the former Cyber-femin Club in St Petersburg);
Susanna Paasonen on the politics of cyberfeminism; Lynn Bell and Carol
Williams interviewing Sara Diamond; Jayne Wark on Kate Craig’s work; Kathy
Kennedy on her work, and artists’ pages from Vera Frenkel, Gina Czarnecki,
Roshini Kempadoo and Helen Sear, Nina Czegledy wrote about the CD Roms of
Christine Tamblyn and Adriene Jenik, and there is an essay by Angelika
Beckmann on ‘Women Artists at ZKM’.
