The exhibition highlights the historical role women played in the development of computer science but it also offers self defence instructions against technology, outlines the relationship between gender and algorithms and reveals dazzling visions of the future. 22 artists obliterate the existing representation of women and computers. They decolonialise the internet and reclaim their place in the technological domain. Meanwhile, with each work, they create room for new forms and ideas, for dialogue and reflection. Hilarious, poetic, critical and visionary: this is Grrrl Power.
