Description - Modest_witness@Second_millennium.Femaleman_meets_oncomouse by Donna J. Haraway
Haraway explores the world of contemporary technoscience through the role of stories, figures, dreams, theories, advertising, scientific advances and politics. Kinship relations among the many cyborg creatures produced in the late twentieth-century - in nuclear research, genetic engineering, reproductive technologies, computer-mediated representational practices and mutations in biological approaches to race' - are also discussed. Beginning with the Modest Witness, the key figure in the Science Revolution, Haraway shows us the trouble lurking in race and gender-marked practices for attesting to matters of fact. Lynn Randolph's paintings, developed in co-operation with Donna Haraway, visualize dramatically the complex imagery of Modest Witness.
