VALIE EXPORT Center Linz Schriften Vol. 1

The Virtual Body. From the Prosthetic to the Post-biological Body

Ed. by Marius Babias and Sabine Folie
Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther und Franz König, Cologne, 2020

“This essayist documentary relates the history of the body as a journey of body represen­tations and performances, from the earliest civilizations up until our digital era. It deals with body rituals, body movements and body inscriptions in dif­ferent cultures, with the civilized body in arts and science, and finally with the virtual, intangible body. It tells of replicants, hybrids, chimeras, avatars, aliens, robots, girl monsters, and cyber feminists. But also of modern genetic research and its dream of artificial life.” VALIE EXPORT, Sprich Körper [Speak Body], 2011, synopsis to a later version of the script, VALIE EXPORT Center Linz (VEC), bundle 148.
