Stelarc wins Prix Ars Electronica

Van Mensvoort
May 18th 2010


Glad to announce that performance artist Stelarc – who already for some decades incorporates themes of cyborgization and other human-machine interfaces in his (very bodily) work – won a Golden Nica + 10.000 euro in the Hybrid Arts category of this years Ars Electronica Award. It was a great pleasure to be seated in the jury.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
