Sandy Stone


friedhof leerThe activist, artist, theoretician and performer Sandy Stone improvises on questions revolving around the relationship between the medical-technological modification of the body and mortality. Themes broached are the feasibility of gender and the presence of the eerie in technological worlds. Her autobiographical performance led us into the transgender world of the 1990s and the possible futures and presents of the cyborg.
