4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art proudly presents an exclusive panel discussion around the impact of cyberfeminism on society, technology, and activism.

Join us at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia, for an afternoon tea followed by a panel talk on the 'Digital Dissent of Cyberfeminism'. This discussion, centred around embracing a feminist perspective within cyberspace, the internet, and technology, delves deep into the transformative concept of disrupting networked patriarchy.

Guided by the expertise of New York-based designer and the author of Cyberfeminism Index, Mindy Seu, the panel will feature cyberfeminist pioneers from the 90s collective, VNS Matrix, that emerged in 1991 to challenge the male-dominated culture of technology and cyberspace- including V Barratt, Josephine Starrs, and Dr. Francesca da Rimini.

VNS Matrix coined the term cyberfeminism to capture their radical vision of empowerment, embodiment, and resistance in the digital age. Their installations, happenings, posters, games, and manifestos explore the sexual, political, and aesthetic dimensions of gendered relationships with technology.

Important: This event is held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia. Mindy Seu's book Cyberfeminism Index will be available to purchase from the MCA Shop.


Afternoon tea/pre-panel networking - 1:00pm to 2:00pm at Waterside Room and Terrace

Panel discussion - 2:00pm to 3:15pm at Veolia Lecture Theatre on Level 02
