Discussion panel hosted by DRIVE-THRU as part of the Disturbed, Hacked, Reassembled programme at Lewisham Arthouse, London.
Disturbed, Hacked, Reassembled explores how artists today are employing technology to stage, interrogate and celebrate the digital female body. Disturbed, hacked, and reassembled, the body is being experienced in new ways digitally and virtually.
Central to feminist critiques of sex and gender, the body is the site of visual difference and it is through the body that difference is experienced and lived. The development of technology and the inception of the Internet have opened up online spaces and virtual worlds that are inhabited by interactive avatars, orbiting 3D body parts and user generated identities.
Titled Re-wiring the Body, the discussion will explore the digital body, its substance and borders and our attitudes towards it.
Speakers will trace artistic practices and theoretical approaches that explore the cyborg, the post human body, CGI imagery and digital skin. From biotechnology to sci-fi and pornography, speakers will uncover the 'flesh' of the human body and explore how it is erased, sexualised and appropriated when fused with the digital. Future bodies and our fascination with the post human will be explored via notions of remixing, reconstructing and reassembling.

From the 14th – 18th August, Lewisham Art House will be showcasing a joint exhibition by artists Laura Greenway and Carlie Simpkin, both recent graduates from University for the Creative Arts, Farnham. The show provides an intimate look into the lives of those affected by psychiatric disorders, and aims to start a much needed and essential conversation about mental illness. A staggering One in Four people suffer from a mental health problem in their lifetime, yet mental illness is still often regarded as a taboo subject that remains highly stigmatised - an issue that this unique and candid exhibition aims to tackle.
