Book presentation: Exhibition magazine "COMPUTER GRRRLS"


With Inke Arns, Marie Lechner and Rosa Menkman

The long awaited publication Computer Grrrls is finally here! The exhibition, curated by Inke Arns and Marie Lechner, was shown in 2018-2019 with great success at HMKV in Dortmund, at La Gaité Lyrique in Paris and at MU in Eindhoven. Neural called it nothing less than "a landmark exhibition"!

For the book presentation, the editors invited Rosa Menkman to present her essay in the form of a performative lecture. Join us for this online event!
