net.art Part Deux: Gender 4 (and my favorite)

April 19, 2010

Go to http://www.genderartnet.eu/emerge/#info to view an interactive map of artists, projects and networks in contemporary Europe; they are treating subjects that range from migrations, passion, and sexuality to identity, maternity, and “queerness”. The map forms images something like this:

You can click on small dots (or other symbols for projects and networks) to see an artist’s description and link to their work.

“GenderArtNet is an experimental mapping project exploring the interrelation of gender, ethnicity, race, class and sexualities in contemporary Europe…By organising this information in a map, we work to provide contexts, connections, and relations between artists, artworks and networks and between geopolitics and artistic practice. Our starting point is a relational understanding of feminism as a critical, multilayered practice that considers the interrelatedness of various forms of social, political and cultural hierarchies and exclusions along the lines of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, bodily ability, race, class and geopolitical location.” ~GenderArtNet Team
