REPRO COMMUNAL GATHERING (ReproRealityHackLab #8) Transformella malor [220.127.116.11] (emerging from J P Raether’s figurations as SelfSister’s aLifveForms.earth)
Transformella malor, an artificial being, constructed by language, technologies of skins and digital devices, holds a gathering to present and discuss their psychorealist findings on what they call „Reprovolution“ – the moments and sites driving the transformation of humanity’s reproduction by means of industrial and globalized reproductive technologies.
At the gathering Transformella will share their embodied experience in harvesting fragments of knowledge and language, sites and lifetimelines in „Repro-normality“, the invisible materialization of globalized biotechnological speculation in everysite.
The gathering is part of a series of encounters that Transformellae have called ReproReality HackLabs and that were hosted in Berlin, Lüneburg and Utrecht in the recent years. They function as a communal nexus to weave a multiplicity of narrations and research, tools and devices for reproductive justice and and queer-feminist kinship.
The session will include readings of Transformella´s repro-communal manifesto, their narrations of „Ikeality“ – a stack of reproductive normalities found at the mass reproduction storage „Ikeae everysite“ and more abstract models of entropy and negentropy of other Artificial Identities.
The gathering is also an intervention into narratives that are dominated by political formalism, professional knowledge barriers and corporate speculation. Transformella on the contrary invites to gather in queerness, expanding on mythopoetic figures and multi-species existence: Becoming chimera, realtional against biological essence and capitalist normalizations.
In English, duration for about 2-3h hours
