From Hamburg, Germany: the Very Cyberfeminist International conference took place last week, hosted by the Old Boys Network (OBN). Huh? Well, OBN is a snarkily-named collective of new media artists and theorists who are actually women...and cyberfeminists. This year's conference posed the questions "What role does the digital medium play in the current restructuring of the world when old borders are shifted and new ones set up? And what is the symbolic and concrete function of 'woman' in this process?" to attendees, who included artists, politicians, theorists and activists from 11 different countries.
