Screw Technology

March 4th 2012

In this particular piece of video art, loyal readers of nextnature.net might recognise the building as Zeche Zollverein in Germany, where we organized the Biggest Visual Power Show in 2006. Others might see an antropomorphobic turn on the artistic genre of the tableau vivant baptised ‘The Humping Pact’ and made by artists Diego Agullo’s and Dmitry Paranyushkin’s. A dead industrial space is brought back to life by elementary  human interaction in quite a mechanical fashion, an artists fantasy that seems to merge notions of industrial-age cybersex with the idea of the conception of what German techno-pioneers Kraftwerk would call: the man-machine. The subtext: fuck technology?

Impressive artisc work you've done.
Cheer you up

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.
