A lecture by ORLAN: Ceci est mon corps, ceci est mon logiciel / L'Institut fran├žais de Bulgarie

26 October (Thursday), 18.00.

Slaveikov Hall of the French Institute, sq. Slaveikov 3

International artist, feminist and always in capital letters, ORLAN gives a lecture in which she talks about everything in her life and everything in her art.

ORLAN is not tied to any artistic medium, technology or artistic practice. She uses sculpture, photography, performance, video, 3D, video games, augmented reality, artificial intelligence and robotics (she has created a robot in her own image that speaks with her voice) as well as scientific and medical techniques such as surgery and biotechnology to question with critical distance the social phenomena of our time.

ORLAN opposes natural, social and political determinism, all forms of domination, male supremacy, religion, cultural segregation, racism.

Always mixed with humour, sometimes parody or even grotesque, her work questions social phenomena and disrupts pre-established codes.

The lecture is free, but advance registration is required at: https://forms.gle/Fn5qrDoXJeKWoMn99

ORLAN's lecture is part of the DA Fest festival program [9] and the Digital November program of the French Institute and is supported by the National Culture Fund, Sofia Municipality, Embassy of France, French Institute and Estederm Bulgaria.
