Feminist Futures

is an ongoing participatory art project that initiates, creates and archives science fiction stories of a feminist internet. In workshops, talks and exhibitions, imagination and narration serve as tools for public engagement in technological processes. Feminist Futures maps current issues on the internet and re-imagines them through stories, comics or poems. Fiction, in this context, becomes a cultural communal practice that enables political action by re-writing and co-creating feminist futures.

The format has been initiated and developed by Katrin Fritsch and Helene von Schwichow. It is open source.
