W21  |  Ed YoungMi Lamine  | recorded: 24 February 2021

W21 is an on-going participatory art project focusing on post-feminism and intersectional practice in art, science, culture, and technology.

The 20/21 theme is dis/embodiment.

The speakers were asked three questions:

  1. Does AI need a body?
  2. How do gender and dis/embodiment play out in the spaces you inhabit? In your work? Is it possible, and if so how to define what it means to be a ‘woman’ in the 21st Century?
  3. What would you say to future generations of women?
