Abstract
Performance lecture by Cornelia Sollfrank that makes a (techno-)feminist comment on the entanglements of gender, technology and information politics exemplified by the case of Julian Assange and Wikileaks. The artist takes us in her text assemblage on an adventurous trip into the realm of zeros and ones, of data and pure information, of ciphers, signifiers and figures. On the other side of reality we encounter suspected heroes, leaks and phreaks, engineers of escape who control our secret desires. Rape can be performed in many ways. In a state of total transparency: what shall we eat, when society feeds upon the repressed? Knowing yourself means knowing what to look for.

The performance is a technofeminist comment on the wikileaks case, in particular the fact that Julian Assange has spent more than five years in confinement following a rape accusation. Instead of making a moral judgement, however, the performance uses and combines sources from information science, psychoanalysis, cultural studies, feminist studies and activism to embed the case is a wide cultural landscape in which gendered structures becomes more than obvious. The performance is divided into 9 chapters with headers such as Information, Organisation, Zeroes&Ones, Binary Worlds, Pure Difference, Cyberfeminism, Gender&Technology, Naked Information and Transparency, and creates a captivating atmosphere by the use of sound and visuals.
