Artist's Choice Screening: Donna Haraway: Story Telling For Earthly Survival
18:15 on 18 February 2020
Dundee Contemporary Arts
We offer our exhibiting artist the chance to screen a film alongside their work in our galleries. These future-focused screenings have been chosen to coincide with our exhibition Seized by the Left Hand.
Feminist thinker and historian of science Donna Haraway is perhaps best known as the author of two revolutionary works: the essay “A Cyborg Manifesto” and the book Primate Visions. Both set out to upend well-established ‘common sense’ categories: breaking down the boundaries among humans, animals, and machines while challenging gender essentialism and questioning the underlying assumptions of humanity’s fascination with primates through a post-colonial lens.
Story Telling for Earthly Survival features Haraway in a playful and engaging exploration of her life, influences, and ideas.
