Die schönen Kriegerinnen (“the beautiful warriors”), published by transversal texts in 2018, brings together seven current techno-feminist positions from art and activism. In very different ways, they expand the cyberfeminist approaches of the 1990s and thus react to new forms of discrimination and exploitation. Gender politics are negotiated with reference to technology, and questions of technology are combined with questions of ecology and economy. Those taking different positions around this new techno-eco-feminism see their practice as an invitation to continue their social and aesthetic interventions.
