Media arts question boundaries and definitions of societal concepts, including notions and conceptions of gender. As part of a new series on media art and gender by the media art platform Art in Flux, Gender*uck raised questions on media art and gender representation. Hand in hand with a talks event at The National Gallery, Gender*uck presented the next generation of artists investigating boundaries of gender concepts in an online exhibition. These young artists investigate gender fluid representation in diverse media: Where does technology empower, where does it limit our conceptions of self and other? How can we look beyond binary forms of representations in the context of the binary and digital in new media. In a tech-centric world of media abundance, what roles can artists play in questioning gender norms, gender representations and gender normativity?
