We have released the much anticipated video documentation of the conference Live Art & the Cyborg Body on YouTube. Pulling together an international and multidisciplinary group of artists and academics who explore the idea of the cyborg in its most expanded forms, the conference explored the boundaries of the natural and the artificial, the social and the virtual, the private and the public. The speakers discuss how these polarized sites have been used as a tool to rigorously and creatively engage with self-representation, by re-imagining and destabilising gender norms, sexual politics, racial paradigms, physical (dis)abilities, health, our relationship to death and the occult.
