Press Release

The Hand Presents FemBot: Videos About Technology, Made By Women and Non-Binary Artists curated by Saki Sato. Screening on Friday, August 24th, 7-10pm

More than half a century ago, early video pioneers like Joan Jonas and Dara Birnbaum used nascent video technology to liberate themselves from the male-dominated, commodity-driven art world. In our ever-changing technological landscape, how do women and non-binary artists use this medium today? What can technlogy do for them and how can it transform them– for better or worse? In seven videos and one performance, these artists show us how technology acts as their savior, oppressor, and/or banal source of entertainment.

Including works by:
Lily Benson
Fei Liu
Son Kit
Saki Sato
Jessie Stead
Amanda Turner Pohan
Masha Vlasova
