U-GEN-A-CHIX: Why are Women like Chickens?


The performance is designed to reveal how eugenic desires and profit motives drive and govern the genetic engineering of humans, animals and agriculture, and produce a new eugenic consciousness. The artists will engage the general public in a hands-on performance and critical dialog about the ways scientific information is performed and distributed, and in examining their various roles in the economic conditions of bio- and information technologies. Participants in subRosa’s ‘research’ are invited to contemplate how human Assisted Reproductive Technologies are connected to the genetic engineering of chickens, pharming, cloning, and eugenic breeding, or “Why are women like chickens?”
