Technofeminist Cross-Readings by Computer Grrrl artist Manetta Berends

In this workshop we will dive into the collection of technofeminist manifestos that are presented in the Computer Grrrls exhibition. Together we will follow a set of cross-readings created by the TF-IDF algorithm, a digital artefact that has been important for the early search engines on the internet and is designed by female computer scientist Karen Spärck Jones in 1972. We will discover how the algorithm calculates its results and do an hands-on exercise that engages with the cross-readings it produces.

Computer Grrrls
The first computers were programmed by women, 75 years ago, and women wrote the software behind Neil Armstrong’s ‘giant leap for mankind’. Since then, IT has become ever more important and gradually turned into a field for nerds where women seem out of place altogether. But the tide is turning: a new wave of Computer Grrrls presents itself in MU, from Saturday 20 July to Sunday 6 October 2019.

The exhibition highlights the historical role women played in the development of computer science but it also offers self­ defence instructions against technology, outlines the relationship between gender and algorithms and reveals dazzling visions of the future. 22 artists obliterate the existing representation of women and computers. They de­colonialise the internet and reclaim their place in the technological domain. Meanwhile, with each work, they create room for new forms and ideas, for dialogue and reflection. Hilarious, poetic, critical and visionary: this is Grrrl Power.
