is an artist, living in Hamburg, Berlin and Celle, Germany. Central to her conceptual and performative works are the relation between art and politics, changing notions of art and the advent of a new image of the artist in the information age, gender-specific handling of technology, as well as the deconstruction of the all-pervading power of technology. She was member of the artist groups 'frauen-und-technik' and '-Innen', and initiated the cyberfemininist organisation 'old boys network':< a href="http://www.obn.org">www.obn.org. Her project "Female Extension" (1997) http://www.obn.org/femext was the hack of the first net.art competition initiated by a museum, in which she flooded the museum's network with submissions by 300 virtual female net artists. Her net.art generator http://www.obn.org/generator automatically produces art on demand. She published the readers "First Cyberfeminist International" (1988) and "Next Cyberfeminist International" (1999).

is a reproducible (cyber)feminist cell of cultural researchers committed to combining art, activism, and politics to explore and critique the effects of the intersections of the new information and biotechnologies on women~s bodies, lives, and work. In subRosa~s definition, second wave cyberfeminism is a promising new manifestation of feminisms that addresses the effects of digital technologies on the political, economic, and personal conditions of women~s lives. subRosa produces artworks, activist campaigns and projects, sneak attacks, publications, media interventions, and public forums that address aspects of technology, gender, and difference; feminism and global capital; new bio and medical technologies and women~s health; and the changed conditions of production and reproduction for women in the integrated circuit.

- virtuella (D)
came to life in the spring of 1996 in the city of Hamburg, when she first performed before an audience with a program of computer animations. After that, she soon switched over to presenting the Internet live instead of preserved animations on video. Over the years she developed a certain technique of story-telling using websites, pictures, texts, sounds and whatever she finds on the Internet as raw material. With that she performed in cinemas, clubs, and even educational contexts.
Virtuella's...hmm, let's say "carrier" is a bit older, though. He was born in 1955 in the sign of Virgo, ascendent Pisces. Astrological analysis of his constellation at birth reveals a peculiar mixture of male and female elements. You may reject the astrologica l perspective and call him a crossdresser or transvestite, if you like. Anyway, gender issues have occupied his/her thinking and feeling to a great extent. Professionally he works as a writer, dealing with the same subjects as Virtuella: media & collective memory, space & life, artificial intelligence & robotics.
