Laboria Cuboniks: The Xenofeminist Manifesto - A Politics for Alienation
Verso, 2018, 96 pages, 11 x 17 cm
The Xenofeminist Manifesto is an attempt to articulate a feminism fit for the twenty-first century. Unafraid of exploring the potentials of technology, exploring both oppressive and emancipatory possibilities, the manifesto seeks to uproot forces of oppression that have come to seem inevitable – from the family, to the body, to the idea of gender itself. The Xenofeminist Manifesto re-asserts that biology is not destiny, that no injustice should simply be accepted as ‘the way things are’, and looks to ways technologies can challenge our understandings of Nature – and even allow us to resist Nature itself.
