‘The Technological Body and Its Discontents’ (Frieze Talks New York 2016)


How have different technologies enabled the animation of distinctive forms of representation in physical and virtual space? How have artists historically queered and queried hetero-normative technological forms and their functions? This panel discussion brings together three artists whose practices subvert and problematize entrenched notions of how the body is mediated through human-made technologies.
