Cyberfeminism: Next Protocols invents and documents with approaches coming from art, theory and activism a cyberfeminism which is dedicated to the wilderness of precise critique and experimental thinking. It opens with the following questions:* What are the everyday embodied conditions of women's lives as they are being altered by the new technologies and communications networks?* What are new forms of oppression and of liberation?* Has the digital medium - starting with the indecisiveness of the Turing test, and in its latest form when calculation-tasks have become autonomous data processing - taken the place of the subject?* Can you tell: Where do you or the machine 'end'?From this starting point develops a multifaceted, very complex critique and analysis of the many intersections of power, gender, and technology in the digital age.
