CYBER INTIMACY: A reading and watching group presented by Beth Bramich and Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau of The Bad Vibes Club at Res., London, Friday 16 September 2016, 7–9.30 pm
Join Beth Bramich and Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau of The Bad Vibes Club in the Kathy Rae Huffman Archive Reading Room at Res. to read Huffman’s CYBER INTIMACY: From Net Nookie to Coffee Talk (1995) alongside a screening of excerpts of moving image works from Huffman’s programme of the same name.
CYBER INTIMACY: From Net Nookie to Coffee Talk (1995) reflected on existing and potential modes of intimacy, sensuality and sex in the medium of digital broadcasting in the early 90’s. This reading and watching group aims to bring to the fore ideological shifts since 1995 that affect the reading of propositions within CYBER INTIMACY including cyber feminist ideology, tele-sensual interactive experiences, consensual problem sharing and sexy homepages.
