feminism is a browser
Video, 2019 (trailer)
Yeva is a fictional cyber entity and bored in the vastness of their webspace. They were created in the 90s by the first generation of FACES, an international network of media pioneers founded by Diana McCarty, Valie Djordjevic and Kathy Rae Huffman.
These women have been communicating for more than 20 years through an email list to support each other in the tech world. They are hackers, net activists, media artists, cyber punks and web researchers. Yeva has access to the mail archive and raised many questions towards their so-called ‚mothers‘: Why did they create Yeva, who or what embodies the internet and how the images and utopias of cyberspace did transform. As the server freezes, Yeva decides to leave the webspace Rosegarden and meet their mothers in the physical world. An essayistic documentary journey begins, a feminist revision of the internet.
