New Criticals

"In Donna Harraway’s seminal text A Cyborg Manifesto in 1991, the concept of the Cyborg was a helpful metaphor for reconsidering one’s condition, place, and relationship, as a critique against the coercion of human identity by the patriarch; and for breaking out of the repeated loops/binary trappings in society. Haraway proposed that to deconstruct worldly inequalities, a remixing of our own identities was essential towards regaining, at some level, control and emancipation for humanist liberties. This and other critical approaches have become a part of Furtherfield’s ethos."
