Gender, sex and sexuality

in techno-patriarchal capitalism: towards a paradigm mutation

Although the notions of masculinity and femininity, heterosexuality and homosexuality continue to be common currency in our society, the new technologies, pharmacologies, information technologies and artificial intelligence are radically transforming the ways of producing and controlling sexual subjectivity. It therefore seems urgent to invent a political and poetical grammar capable of dealing with the new configurations of power.

The philosopher and activist Paul B. Preciado tackles the need to overcome the fragmentation of identity politics and move towards a change of paradigm. He will be accompanied by Eloy Fernández Porta, who has focused part of his research on various aspects of gender and contemporary culture.
