Curator’s Tour with Anne Faucheret, as part of the MQ Summer Opening
Anne Faucheret discusses the role of technology in the formation of local and global configurations of power, forms of identity, and ways of life.
The exhibition HYSTERICAL MINING analyses the material worlds we are creating through technology and technology’s role in shaping local and global configurations of power, forms of identity, and ways of living. It draws on radical feminist and ecofeminist theories from the 1970s until now that criticized and revised the nexus tying new technologies and techno-science to patriarchal ideas. Its agenda is both intellectual and political. The works of the artists included in the show go beyond critique to think and enact other kinds of knowledge, skills, and bodily practices regarding the use as well as production of (new) technologies.
Anne Faucheret is an art historian and art critic. She has been a curator at Kunsthalle Wien since 2014, where she has curated among others the group shows The Promise of Total Automation (2016), Work it, feel it!
