As part of Salzburg Summer Academy‘s Public Program, curated by Maayan Sheleff

Listen to it like you haven’t been born yet, tell it as you are still in the surrogate womb.
How deeply are we attuned to the technological systems we place ourselves in, and we place in ourselves? The program will focus on the role of platform capitalism in shaping and orienting user bodies, gender and sexuality. Combining performance, participatory experience and live podcast, the evening will bring together artists Agnė Jokšė and Ofri Cnaani, and researchers-creators Carmen Lael Hines and Morgane Billuart. Agnė Jokšė works with words. They are currently creating a non-binary Lithuanian language and use performance to explore queerness and language. Jokšė will present Lezbynai (2020), an erotic story about lesbian love in the background of the Lazdynai district where the artist grew up. Artist Ofri Cnaani will lead the audience in Stories from the Surrogate Womb, an exploration of the Generali collection / Museum der Moderne(?? Location dependent) that focuses on the idea of somatic listening. The performance is a personal wandering through call-and-response prompts and allows participants to re-experience familiar or unfamiliar sites in the collection through the notion of choreographic listening.
Carmen Lael Hines and Morgane Billuart's recent research and writings focus on the fast-growing industry of Femtech, a term which describes the software, products and digital services that focus on female health. In their performative lecture and live podcast recording, Girlemployee, Billuart and Hines use podcasts as a performative medium for presenting research and discussing the history of critiquing platforms via platforms. Together with the audience, they ask when the podcast becomes a space for articulating alternative knowledge-making structures. How do podcasts appeal to the temporalities of post-capitalist time-keeping – voices that feed you information as you move from one location to the other?
